Colchester education officials approve delayed start to school year to allow more preparation for educators

New London

COLCHESTER, Conn. (WTNH) — Another Connecticut school is pushing back its start date. Students in Colchester will now start the year on September 8 instead of August 31.

The delayed start was recommended to allow more time to prepare for a safe and smooth reopening as well as because of delayed guidance from the state on the hybrid model option.

The Board of Education approved a school calendar last night. It includes 177 instructional days for students.
