EdAdvance is one of Connecticut's six Regional Educational Service Centers (RESCs). Our mission as the RESC in western Connecticut is to promote the success of school districts and their communities.

Collaboratively with them, we provide educational and related services.  A continuing commitment to quality and excellence is our standard of performance.

EdAdvance was established under Connecticut Statute 10-66, a-m, and is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of members from local Boards of Education. EdAdvance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization


EdAdvance exists to promote the success of school districts and their communities.

To achieve our mission, we are committed to the “Three Cs”:


Connection — We actively listen to, engage with, and learn from our colleagues within the agency and our constituents across the region and state. This fosters and strengthens partnerships, leading to true understanding of our region.

Culture — We strive to achieve “Systemness”, where everyone embraces and is committed to the success of our agency as a whole. This internal climate of cooperation is evident to our school district and community partners.

Customization — We focus on “Culture” and “Connection” to increase our capacity to provide flexible solutions, services, and supports tailored to the unique needs of the school districts and communities we serve and at the level of excellence they expect.
