What is EASTCONN?

Created in 1980 under Connecticut General Statute 10-66a, EASTCONN is a public, non-profit, Regional Educational Service Center (RESC). EASTCONN exists to provide high-quality, competitively priced educational and related services to 36 member Boards of Education (school districts) and the 33 communities they serve in northeastern Connecticut. We are governed by a Board of Directors, which is composed of representatives from locally elected Boards of Education. The agency’s funding comes from the fees it charges for programs, products and services, supplemented by competitively awarded grants and contracts.How do I get to University?
