Community Meeting on New Milford Uniform Policy

The Uniform Policy meeting is in the high school auditorium at 7:30 tomorrow night (Wednesday). This is for parents, community members, students, and teachers. Please plan to attend to support this policy (or not support it if that is your view). The important thing is that you are there so your voice can be heard.

    There were over 200 people there, the Library was packed…. we all came to have our voices heard… estimated 90% opposition to the policy. And after only 90 minutes, the narrarator Shawn Snyder dismissed the Discipline Committee and the rest of the faculty (those directly responsible for pushing this policy through) when there were still dozens of people who had their hands up waiting to speak for over 45 minutes.
    Yeah, come out and have your voices NOT heard, because the committees and faculty will just go home and ignore you.

    Derek – The teachers were asked to propose a solution to a high school problem. As educators, we aren’t allowed the opportunity to speak freely regarding our workplace – and rightfully so. I saw many of my colleagues berated. For 4 years the high school has not met Adequate Yearly Progress (the tiered levels set by NCLB.) I hope parents will come out as they understand more in education. Believe me, the high school faculty who showed up is a dedicated group who you see coaching on sidelines, volunteering for extra curricular activities and supporting what little we have available to young people in our community. Please know that these are not people who “ignore” or “push” policy through. They are dedicated educators, classroom teachers, who answered questions – not directors or supervisors who command policy.
