Welcome to Canterbury Public Schools

Superintendent’s Message:

I am so excited you’re taking the time to view our web site.  We take pride in our school district.  Our theme this year is teamwork.  We started the year off with Professional Development involving every staff member who works in Canterbury Public Schools, in one room, at one time.   The message was clear: no matter what your job is here, you are a valuable member of our team.  It is so exciting to be working with an eager, passionate Leadership Team that continues to blossom and grow together.  Sarah Cary is the principal at CES; she’s been with us for one year.  While we currently have an interim principal at BMS, our new principal is Ryan Earley.  He will be starting on July 1, 2015.  We welcome him to our team.  Jodi Davis continues on as our Director of Special Services and Janice Thurlow remains as the Director of Finance.  We will continue to bring Canterbury Public Schools in the positive direction it has is always been going.  The entire district is being directed by our three-year strategic plan which started implementation in September 2014 and will carry us through June of 2017.  The Board of Education uses the strategic plan as a guiding document and asks for monthly updates from the Superintendent.  Through proactive work between the Board of Education chair, the Board of Finance chair, the First Selectman, and the Superintendent, we have been able to proactively engage in numerous conversations and work together on many projects, including the annual town budget.  Please be sure you have all the information necessary when it comes time for you to vote.  Your input is valued as a stakeholder in the town of Canterbury.  If you have any questions or needs, feel free to call the superintendent’s office.  Her door is always open.  I hope you use this website as a portal into education community by using the links below.  Please feel free to browse the site for updated news and information about our schools.  We are also open the comments and suggestions.  Thank you for visiting our site.
Dr. Lois D. Knapton, Superintendent
