Senator John A. Kissel and Representative Carol Hall Applaud State Education Funding Enhancement for Enfield

July 2, 2024

Senator Kissel and Representative Hall are pleased to announce increased funding for the Enfield School District this year. The Connecticut State Department of Education has announced that the district will receive a total of $275,000 to Enfield for the district’s bold and innovative strategies to improve student outcomes. In 2018, Enfield was considered “overfunded” under the Education Cost Sharing ECS funding formula and has received flat ECS funding since then. After meeting with both Senator Kissel and Representative Hall last month, the Lamont Administration in collaboration with the State Department of Education decided to allocate this one-time funding to the district.

“I thank the Connecticut State Department of Education for the release of this ARPA funding to support Enfield’s educational system,” Senator Kissel stated.

“I am thrilled that the Connecticut State Board of Education saw fit to release these COVID dollars to both Enfield and Groton,” Rep. Hall said. “Knowing the problems that arose in last year’s budget and the year prior, this is certainly welcome news for our district. Senator Kissel and I were extremely excited after our meeting with CSDE generated this additional funding.”
