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 email@example.com.

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 Campus – Parent 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.
Shelton High School community believes that a safe, respectful atmosphere must be established and maintained for all students to achieve excellence and become responsible citizens. Within this environment, we expect all students to be engaged learners and critical thinkers who demonstrate technological literacy. The Shelton High School student is expected to meet academic, social and civic expectations. We believe students, staff, and parents, in cooperation with community members, must share responsibility in the teaching and learning process. Shelton High School offers a variety of academic, co-curricular and athletic opportunities for all students. We encourage students to challenge themselves academically and to rise to their full potential. Students are also encouraged to participate in clubs, on teams and in school productions. Shelton High School is a place where there is a culture of respect for self and others and we are committed to offer opportunities for life-long learning. Our Gael Guidelines define our school culture: respect, responsibility, safety.
I look forward to a productive year.
Dr. Beth A. Smith
