Shelton names new superintendent of schools

Chris Clouet has been named the new superintendent of schools in Shelton.

He will start in January.

The announcement was made at Wednesday night's Board of Education meeting. He will be replacing Freeman Burr, who said he was leaving following a long budget battle.

Clouet has most recently served as superintendent of schools in Terryville, a town north of Waterbury. He announced he was leaving his position in June.
