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.
Birds are chirping and flowers are blooming. Sunnysiders are excited to enter the last trimester of the 2018- 19 school year. I cannot thank our families enough for their outstanding support with our Raise Craze fundraiser. The acts of kindness completed and donations collected are a testament to your commitment to your children and our school. I would like to thank our families for delving into our read initiative with Chocolate Touch. We are excited to share some chocolate-inspired activities during our Family Night on Wednesday, April 3rd at 6pm. In addition, some community businesses are joining us to share ways to combat those chocolate cravings. Although our book has ended, the love of reading as a family never ends. Take advantage of your local library and bookstores to continue this “family read” tradition. Our grade 3 & 4 students will be participating in the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) this May. They are assessed in three areas - reading content, mathematics content and mathematic performance task. Our testing window begins May 7 th and concludes on May 24 th; giving an extra week for make-up testing. Students are given extra time and may continue the following day if needed. We encourage students to get a good night sleep, arrive to school on time and eat a healthy breakfast. Our teachers and students have been working diligently incorporating higher level thinking skills and problem solving strategies into their daily lessons. They are well prepared and eager to demonstrate their skills. We have confidence in their ability to perform well.
Mrs. Amy Yost
