Welcome to Canterbury Public Schools
After a thorough search process, conducted by the CT Association of Boards of Education , Canterbury has hired a new Superintendent; my name is Lois C. Knapton. I joined the Canterbury team in August 2013.
As we begin our journey together, I am impressed by the warm welcome I have received by the staff, students, and community. I am eager to jump in and continue the efforts already under way. My entry plan includes listening and learning to gather information about the community and schools to discern what is working, what needs attention, and to pursue thoughts about the future. My aim is to twofold: to better understand the history and current context of the district before engaging in problem- solving and improvement efforts and to establish and maintain open and honest channels of communication with both staff and community.
