Lewis S. Mills High School Region 10 | FOX 61

Alan Beitman Superintendent of Schools for Region 10 Public Schools said “Last evening the Region 10 Board of Education adopted, for the Public Hearing on Monday, March 25 at 7:00 PM in the Lewis Mills Auditorium, the estimate of expenses of $ 41,391,640 or a 3.73% increase over the current operating budget.”

Regional School District #10 serves Burlington and Harwinton and was established in 1962. The four schools of the district, Lewis S. Mills High School, Har-Bur Middle School, Lake Garda School and Harwinton Consolidated School, have a total enrollment of more than 2800 students.

The communities have a commitment to high quality schools meeting the academic needs of a wide range of students.

Burlington, with a current population of 7,800, and Harwinton, with a current population of 5,300, are growing, attractive, suburban communities with residential areas scattered between large pockets of watershed-protected land. Major shopping areas exist in nearby Avon, Bristol, and Torrington.

“Additionally, Beitman said they approved two new positions: A social worker for Grades PreK-4 to be shared between Lake Garda School and Harwinton Consolidated and an enrichment teacher for grades 5-8. They also reinstated a fifth-grade teacher for the 2019-2020 school year. The Board has directed me to find the funds — approximately $180,000 — for these positions within the approved Estimate of Expenses.

The hearing will take place on Monday, March 25 at 7:00 PM in the Lewis Mills Auditorium.
