The Shelton School District Board of Directors is delighted to announce our selection for Superintendent of our district.  Dr Alex Apostle will replace our current Interim Superintendent, Dr Art Jarvis on July 1, 2015.

We were fortunate to have three top quality educational finalists to invite into the school district for daylong meetings March 16 -18.  The Board acknowledges and thanks the public and district employees for their input and feedback in this most important decision for the school district. 

We have instructed our consultant, Dr Mike Boring to enter into contract negotiations with Dr Apostle.
