    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,
I would like to wish our Sunnyside families a very healthy and prosperous New Year. With every New Year, we reflect upon our previous accomplishments and set goals for the future year. The positive partnership that the school and families have is evident with our student and school success. By working together, your children gain dual support to accomplish these goals both academically and personally. We are excited to see more outstanding progress in 2019. We will begin our Aimsweb Plus assessments on January 4, 2019 through January 11, 2019. Our NWEA and Reading Inventory for grades 3 & 4 will be administered from January 22, 2019- January 25, 2019. This new data will be beneficial in setting new academic goals to meet the needs of our students. We appreciate the continued support.
Mrs. Amy Yost
