    Alliance of Prevention & Wellness Youth Survey

    Shelton Public Schools will again be participating in a comprehensive survey of every 7th, 9th, and 11th grader in the Valley public and private schools. The survey, compiled by the Alliance for Prevention & Wellness, a program of BHCare, is the ONLY Valley-specific survey of youth substance use and was last completed in 2017. The survey should only take about 20 minutes to complete and will be given during the school day. The results are COMPLETELY anonymous; it does not ask for the student’s name, nor is a respondent’s information tracked individually in any way. Only combined Valley data is reported back to the town.

    Please see attached letter from the Superintendent.

    Survey participation dates are scheduled for:

    Grade 7 – May 20th

    Grade 9 – May 21st

    Grade 11 – May 31st

    Please see attached copy of  the survey questions. Guardians may choose to "opt-out" of this survey opportunity by contacting the student's school's main office.  If you have questions about the survey itself, please call APW at 736-8566 and ask for the agency’s Director, Pamela Mautte or the Prevention Coordinator Lorrie McFarland. You may also email me them at pmautte@bhcare.org or lmcfarland@bhcare.org.

  • Elementary School Redistricting Plan Public Meetings

    The redistricting plan proposal for Booth Hill, Elizabeth Shelton, Long Hill, Mohegan, and Sunnyside elementary schools was adopted by the Shelton Board of Education at their meeting on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. The Scenario 5 proposal and other important information can be viewed in the documents posted below. This adopted proposal provides the district with the best long-term redistricting outcome for all of our elementary schools. 

    All elementary school families that will be directly affected by redistricting will be contacted by their current school with a transition plan for their students. 

    Specific questions or concerns can still be emailed to redistricting@sheltonpublicschools.org.

  • Pay to Participate Public Statement & FAQs

    Superintendent’s Pay-to-Participate Public Statement  - September 4, 2018

     The Shelton Board of Education, due to a pattern of under-funding, leaving our students to learn and grow in one of the lowest funded districts in CT, continually needs to make due with less.

    Our dual priorities are student safety and academic opportunities.

     After reducing our workforce while trying to maintain a qualified, professional staff, we now must ask families to help support important programs in athletics and the arts.  As the cost of healthcare, utilities, and labor go up our funding has not kept pace. We need the community’s help to provide for programs we cannot afford any longer.

    We do not like Pay-to-Participate, and we will work with families to make this work, but with our consistently low per pupil expenditure (near the very bottom of the state-published annual listing of all school districts), we now need the direct support from the community to meet our legally mandated priorities, as well as traditional athletics and arts-based activities.

     "Pay to Participate" will help keep our excellent programs in the arts and athletics sustainable.

     A link to the specific details of "Pay to Participate" can be found on our website and on the attached Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document regarding “Pay to Participate”.

    By the end of the first week of school (9/7/18) – parent/guardians will be able to electronically pay for their student’s participation in school activities via Infinite CampusParent Portal.

    Through the Parent Portal – parents/guardians will be able to access individual student information regarding “Fees” and “Payments” similar to the way parents currently use the Point of Sale system for our food service provider.
