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.
AUVI-Q® (epinephrine injection, USP) is a prescription medicine used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, in people who are at risk for or have a history of serious allergic reactions.

I am very excited to share that Sunnyside School has received the Connecticut Associations of Schools Recognition of Positive School Climate on November 14, 2017! The purpose of this award is to give public recognition to schools in CT that demonstrate outstanding positive climate and culture. We were commended for the noble work of our staff and excellence demonstrated in school practices and events. Our families’ support and efforts have played a significant role in earning this wonderful recognition. Way to go Sunnyside Families!!! A small recognition ceremony with CAS is planned during our December 6 th faculty meeting. As we approach this festive season, I would like to extend warm wishes and thanks to the Sunnyside School community. This is a wonderful time of year to recognize and appreciate our differences. These differences make our communities so rich with character. Each day I look forward to working with the students, families and staff of Sunnyside. I hope that during this holiday season, you are surrounded by family and friends. Happy Holidays and best wishes for a prosperous New Year! Mrs. Amy Yost
