Parent Attends Board Meeting Seeking Answers

October 08, 2008 - 00:23

It has come to our attention that a parent will address the Board of Education meeting tonight, October 7, 2008 calling in to question several items related to lack of equity, accountability and transparency within the City School District of New Rochelle. Some of the specific items being brought up have been raised previously. As we understand, neither the Board of Education nor the Superintendent of Schools have responded to this parent’s concerns. This particular parent’s concerns are of interest to all that live in New Rochelle. Tonight, other items will be added to the list awaiting a formal response (or acknowledgement) from the district. Maybe if the Board of Education and district officials close their eyes really tight and plug their ears, any concerns that parents bring up will simply go away.

Parents Mobilizing to Address 15 Minute Lunch

It has come to our attention that in a direct response to our post Lessons From the Lunchroom, a number of parents have begun to organize efforts to address the 15 minute lunch of the 4th and 5th graders at Trinity Elementary School. Many parents were unaware that this was happening and are not satisfied with the responses given by City School District officials. We will bring you more information as it becomes available.
