BOE Workshop Meeting - September 21, 2016
Last Wednesday night's Middletown Board of Education Workshop meeting lasted 2 hours and to be honest, I haven't had time to review it completely, I'm about halfway through but I thought it important to post nevertheless for others to view.
One of the items discussed last week that I'm interested in, is the policy revision to the regulation regarding security for groups who rent our school with more than 75 people in attendance. The revised regulation would require Tier 2 and Tier 3 users to incur costs for a security guard to be present at events.
What this means is groups such as the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, BYAA, MYAA, sports or day camps, St Mary Soccer or other types of community groups, that use Middletown Board of Education facilities may not be able to do so due to the added costs to their programs.
This discussion item will be voted on at the next Board of Education meeting which just so happens to be this evening Tuesday, September 27th.
I would implore those concerned about this change of policy to attend the meeting and speak out against it.
