SHELTON, Conn. -- Shelton Public Schools officials adopted a $70.4 million spending plan for the district Wednesday that includes more money for technology along with additional help for special needs students and those learning English, the Connecticut Post reports.

The new budget also represents a first for Superintendent Chris Clouet, who took the helm in January and worked with Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti on preparing the district's budget, according to the Connecticut Post. The spending plan is an increase over the $69.3 million budget for the schools last year, the Connecticut Post says.

City and school officials recently learned that they will get an additional $686,000 from the state's Education Cost Sharing Grant. Shelton schools can also benefit from lower-than-expected medical costs, and lower health insurance projections, among other things, the Connecticut Post reports.
