About the Board
School Board members are elected officials who devote many hours to planning and setting direction for our schools. Important duties include selecting the superintendent, hiring of personnel and adopting budget proposals. One of their primary functions is to determine school district policy.
In addition to making decisions about district issues, they try to keep abreast of all the developments in education in our state and around the country. They believe that an informed and involved community is critical to a successful school district and want to maintain open communication with all constituents.
The Shelton School Board is composed of five citizens and one student representative who are elected to represent the community in setting policies and directing school programs. Members serve in staggered four-year terms. School Board members must be United States citizens and qualified voters residing in the district.
