Colebrook/Norfolk Regionalization Meeting & Referendum Dates

Important Dates A hearing concerning the Norfolk and Colebrook Public School Proposed Regionalization Plan Norfolk: Monday, August 10 at 7 p. m. at Botelle School Colebrook: Tuesday, August 11 at 7 p. m. at Colebrook Consolidated School A simultaneous referendum to consider establishing a regional elementary school district including the towns of Norfolk and Colebrook. Tuesday, September 22 from 6 a. m. to 8 p. m. Norfolk/Colebrook Regionalization Plan Colebrook and Norfolk school board members, town officials, and members of each community have been conducting a year-long study to determine the advisability of Norfolk and Colebrook School Districts merging into one regional school district. An important characteristic of this merger would be that Colebrook Consolidated School will close and all elementary students will attend Botelle School in Norfolk. On July 1, 2015, the Connecticut State Board of Education approved the plan. In order for the merger to occur, both towns must approve the regionalization in a simultaneous referendum to be held Tuesday, September 22. All Colebrook community members are encouraged to become knowledgeable about the plan and vote in the September 22 referendum. More information about the regionalization plan may be found on the Colebrook Consolidated School website http://www.colebrookschool.org.
