SHELTON — A Shelton Intermediate School music teacher was one of 22 position eliminations approved Wednesday as the school board looks to bring its budget in line with the $72,765,000 the city has allocated for the Board of Education. The Board of Aldermen approved the $128 million city budget Friday.
Interim Superintendent Beth Smith said the current SIS music teacher is retiring. Rather than hire someone new, the decision was made to move one of three Perry Hill music teachers to SIS, leaving only two at the elementary school. The move saves the school board $103,699.
