Shelton school system hires new I.T. director

The Shelton Board of Education (BOE) will have a new technology director beginning June 24.

Daniel DiVito, a Trumbull resident and native, has been hired to oversee the BOE’s information technology needs. He now is technology director for the New Milford public school system.

DiVito said he is excited about the new position because Shelton is “a fantastic community. Growing up next door, I know a lot about it.”

Shorter commute

The 1998 Trumbull High School graduate also is looking forward to the much shorter commute. “I’m closer to come,” he said.

DiVito was introduced at a recent BOE meeting. “I’m very excited to come on board,” he told Shelton school board members.

A good fit

BOE Chairman Mark Holden said DiVito appears to be a good fit for the Shelton school district. “I think it’s going to work out great for us,” Holden said.

Holden said the BOE’s current technology director, Dana Urban, is leaving for a job in the private sector.
