EASTCONN has named Eric Protulis to lead the agency’s Special Services division.
“Prior to working for EASTCONN, I was always impressed with the collaborative nature of the agency,” said Protulis, who was recently named Director of EASTCONN Special Services.
“I look forward to continuing in this tradition. We face many challenges when providing programming for students with disabilities and I’m eager to identify the ways in which we can partner to better serve the students in our region.”
In his new role, Protulis will oversee the day-to-day operations of EASTCONN’s two Clinical Day Treatment programs; the Related Services group; Autism Program; and Psychological and Behavioral Consultation Services.
“We are very excited that Eric accepted this expanded leadership role at EASTCONN,” said Tom Cronin, EASTCONN’s Director of Education Services. “His experience running one of our Clinical Day Treatment programs over the last three years, and as a school psychologist and special services director has prepared him to lead our special education programs and services. He is smart, thoughtful and responsive. He’s an outstanding leader and advocate, who will continue to grow and strengthen our collective work.”
Protulis has been an educator for 18 years, and holds degrees in psychology and school psychology. He has been a school psychologist and has worked for the state Department of Corrections, Plainville Middle School, and Regional School District #8 (RHAM), where he served as director of special education for five years. When he first joined EASTCONN, he oversaw the Educational Vocational Center in Columbia.
