We’re Moving!

As a reminder, the Bureau of Special Education, along with all other offices of the State Department of Education, with the exception of the Connecticut Technical High School System, is moving to a new location.

Beginning on January 17, 2017, the Bureau of Special Education will be housed at 450 Columbus Blvd., Suite 604, in Hartford. The facility on Columbus Blvd. is located at the intersection of Interstates 91 and 84 along the Connecticut River. All telephone numbers will remain the same.

For mailing purposes, please use the following address: State of Connecticut, Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education, P.O. Box 2219, Hartford, CT 06145, Attention: [consultant’s name here].

For a time, the Postal Service will forward any mail sent to the old Hartford or Middletown addresses.

If you are visiting our new location, our physical address is: State of Connecticut, Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education, 450 Columbus Blvd., Suite 604, Hartford, CT 06103.

Visitors are directed to park in the Morgan Street garage and a nominal parking fee will be required. After parking, take the elevator down to the street level and using the cross walk, walk across the street to the public entrance of 450 Columbus Blvd. On-street parking is also available.

When visiting, you must sign in at the security desk with photo identification. All visitors will be entered electronically into the visitor management system and issued a visitor’s badge. Security personnel will contact the person whom you are visiting and direct you to an elevator where you will proceed to the appropriate floor. Your contact person will typically meet you in the elevator lobby of that floor and escort you to your meeting location. Please remember to turn in your visitor’s badge when you leave.
