Awards and Scholarships


Any award or scholarship proposed for presentation in the Newtown Public Schools which originates outside the school system must be submitted to the Board of Education for approval. The Board of Education reserves the right to accept or reject any such proposed award or scholarship.

The schools of the Newtown school system may establish and maintain a system of awards and scholarships which originate within a school in the system for the purpose of recognizing student achievement or special merit. In each such case, any award or scholarship which originates within a school must be submitted to the Principal for prior approval.

As new awards or scholarships are established by a school within the system, the Superintendent of Schools shall be made so aware.
