The Board of Alderman, during its March meeting, had the pleasure of having over two dozen parents in attendance petitioning the Mayor and the board to appropriate funds for the Shelton school system. They focused on the 2017-18 budget and the need for more Chromebooks in the elementary schools.
Mayor Lauretti was very clear that he and the board have always provided funds that directly enhance the student's learning programs and progress. He asked the parents to petition the Board of Education and the schools administrators for a request for Chromebooks. To their credit the parents did as requested. Less than one month later at the April 13 meeting the board approved $250,000.00 per the Mayor's promise for the Chromebooks.
