  • 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.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians,

It is hard to believe January is over. Our students worked diligently during the administration of our winter assessments. If you have any questions about your child(ren)’s performance, do not hesitate to reach out to his/ her classroom teacher. These assessments are one component of many that develop a well-rounded student. They assist our teachers and coaches in developing meaningful lesson and groups to support individual needs.

We are excited to launch and support the PTO’s Raise Craze fundraising initiative. It is fundraising through KINDNESS. Students will create their own online platform (with parent permission and guidance) to invite family and friends to sponsor their acts of kindness. This fundraiser will run from February 25th – March 11th. Our goal is to raise $15,000. Last year we raise $12,500. The funds raised will support the PTO’s yearly budget and our playground fund. Students that raise at least $30, send out 5 emails & complete 3 acts of kindness during the two week period will earn a VIP ticket to a special dance party with Mrs. Yost. In addition, if we hit our goal, there will be a special surprise for me to participate in during field day. Although we are a small school, we have a big heart. If each student raises $65 we will reach our goal. Keep a look out for informational material being sent home mid to late February. Thank you in advance for your support.

Please note, if we have a late opening due to inclement weather, students may be dropped off at 10:45am. Unfortunately, we do not have staff available prior to that time; please plan accordingly.


Mrs. Amy Yost
