Parker Housing Project Update

On (1/26/2016) school administration, school facilities staff, Town administrators, Town Public Works officials, parent representatives, Public Safety personnel, Resident State Troopers, Board of Education and Town Council representatives worked collaboratively with Housing and Engineering staff to review and discuss feedback from the 1/14/2016 community meeting on the Parker Housing Project. Participants carefully reviewed community concerns, and generated plans to mitigate or resolve them. These plans included the development of a proposal from the consulting engineer, working in close collaboration with school staff, to relocate the play-scape, re-conceptualize parent and staff parking and student drop-off options, and provide for barrier and fencing protection. In addition, the group discussed additional potential security measures and conditions. The development of the additional proposal will be at the Town’s expense, and will be presented to the public in a meeting on February 9th, at 6 PM, in the Tolland High School Library. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. In the interim, the Superintendent of Schools would be happy to answer any questions he can and may be reached at the Central Office at 860-870-6850 extension 1.

The Tolland Public Schools Strategic Plan was approved by the Board of Education at its November 28, 2012 meeting.  The Strategic Plan incorporates the findings developed through the work of the New England School Development Council (NESDEC) and the Strategic Plan Steering Committee.

Those findings included the following six topic areas:
  1. Communication
  2. Technology
  3. 21st Century Learning Skills
  4. Parent/Community Engagement
  5. Student Learning/Curriculum
  6. School Environment
The Strategic Plan addresses each of these areas.  The Plan includes specific strategies and actions:
  1. To ensure high levels of student achievement for each individual academically, socially, and emotionally in preparation for a 21st Century world.
  2. To establish a positive school climate where all members of the school community are safe, respected, and available for learning.
  3. To provide and utilize technology to promote learning.
  4. To facilitate consistent communication among Tolland Public Schools' stakeholders.
  5. To improve school facilities that support student achievement and provide a safe learning and working environment.

In June of 2010, the Council of Chief State School Officers and the National Governor’s Association, with monetary support from the Gates and Mott Foundations and the desire expressed through the Race to the Top initiative, released national curriculum standards for math, English language arts,  and literacy standards for social studies, science and the technical subjects. All but five states have adopted these standards.  These standards are now Connecticut’s Common Core State Standards (CCSSs).

In addition to the above, national science frameworks have been developed and standards are slated to be adopted and released in the fall. Social studies standards are also new and have already been developed for use by Connecticut.

message from the superintedent

Welcome to the website of the Tolland Public Schools.
This website has been prepared for the sole purpose of making school information easier to find, and it is our hope that it will become for parents, students, and visitors the “go to” place for that information.

The website has been developed to enable visitors to become familiar with our district, as well as our schools, and to provide current information, updated school news, schedules, and events.  It is also our goal to improve our communication with parents, students, staff, and the community at large.

Our home page has a calendar that includes the events scheduled district-wide, as well as an area of “Quick Links” for easy access to information utilized on a regular basis.  The tabs located across the top of the page have drop down menus containing a variety of information that you will also find helpful.

Please visit our site often as we add and update information about our schools and programs.
