Shelton's About the Board

About the Board

School Board members are elected officials who devote many hours to planning and setting the 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 two student representatives 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.

The Shelton School District School Board Director districts have 3 geographical based districts and 2 at-large districts. For the geographically based positions, the Board member must live in the director district from which he or she is a candidate, but is elected on a popular vote from the total school district. The Board members representing the at-large positions can live in any of the 3 districts. The state does not limit the number of terms a director can serve.

For further information see the map of the director districts.
