  • Elementary School Redistricting Plan Public Meetings

    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 redistricting@sheltonpublicschools.org.

  • 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

Welcome to Shelton Intermediate School (SIS).  The “Middle School” years are a unique period of time during which you will notice a tremendous amount of social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.  To assist students during their years spent at SIS, we have developed this handbook.  Please take the time to read and review this handbook with your child / children.  This handbook will prove to be a valuable resource to which you can refer to answer a variety of questions regarding a number of policies and procedures which exist at SIS.

 

At Shelton Intermediate School, our goal is to enable our students to experience social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth.  In addition, we attempt to instill in our students a sense of personal accountability in all areas ranging from academic performance to behavior.  Every effort is made to ensure that students are provided with a safe and positive environment in which learning can take place.  We promote empathy, courtesy, and respect while teaching our students to appreciate diversity in all of its various forms.  Our academic programs are designed around a set of learning principles, or core beliefs, which frame the concept of “learning for understanding” in which students are challenged to apply their knowledge in a variety of contexts. 

 

Parental involvement is critical to ensure the success of each child.  It is for this reason that we encourage parents / guardians to be involved in the education of their respective children.  Maintaining open lines of communication will allow us to work together with you, the parent / guardian, to do what is in the best interest of your child. 

 

Please allow us to extend our best wishes for a healthy, productive, and successful school year.  If you have questions or concerns, we encourage you to contact us so that issues can be addressed in an appropriate and timely fashion.

 

Professionally Yours,

 

KENNETH D. SARANICH, PRINCIPAL
