Shelton's Newcomer Program

Newcomer Program

A Step Forward - Newcomer Program

Shelton School District offers a Newcomer program for our recent immigrants to the United States who have limited English proficiency and/or no formal education in their native countries. This program was created to develop and strengthen Newcomer needs before they enter into the general education classroom. The Newcomer Program serves grades five through twelve with emphasis on educating students in the areas of linguistic proficiency skills, cultural needs and social adaptions to a new culture. Student schedules are split between the Newcomer program and the general student population for elective classes. Additional services are available through our Migrant and McKinney-Vento programs.
