Welcome to Ledyard Public Schools

Superintendent Hartling

August 2019

“Believing in the unlimited potential of every student,” is the motto of Ledyard Public Schools. We strive to keep this powerful idea at the heart of each decision and action we take. Our team is mindful of our strong history and the community's expectation of excellence, innovation, and community involvement. 



The 2019-2020 school year is full of new adventures as we begin a new chapter in Ledyard’s history. We are celebrating the long-awaited opening of our two “new” school buildings. Redistricting for our elementary schools is complete as is the expansion of Ledyard Middle School to now serve 6-8 grade. We are ready to welcome students and staff on the first day of school, August 29. 


Unfortunately, events around our Nation continue to reinforce the need for vigilance around school safety and security. Our ongoing partnership and consultation with the Ledyard Police Department has expanded to include the adoption and training of our team in enhanced protocols for incident response. We will continue to improve the procedures our team follows in order to prepare, communicate and respond in emergency situations. 


As you explore the website and visit our schools, I am sure you will understand why it is such an honor to work alongside such a dedicated and caring team of faculty, staff, and administrators. I encourage you to partner with teachers and staff and to stay involved with our schools. 


I wish you all a successful 2019-20 school year. 


Jay Hartling
