PACE Saugerties (People Actively Committed to Education) is hosting a Reclaiming Public Education forum to discuss funding and high-stakes testing on Wednesday March 25, 2015 7:00pm at the Frank D. Greco Senior Center, 207 Market Street in Saugerties.
This forum will be similar to the Demystifying Testing forum hosted by Kingston Action For Education on March 16, 2015. If you missed the KAFE forum but don’t want to miss the great information, attend the forum in Saugerties.
Please pass the information below on to any parents in Saugerties who you have contact with and encourage them to attend the PACE forum this Wednesday March 25, 2015.
Earlier this morning [March 23, 2015], Saugerties CSD Superintendent Seth Turner posted a letter on the district website that purports to address ramifications of refusal on the district’s good standing.
Mr. Turner goes on in his letter to outline a litany of “consequences” that may befall the district in the case of opt outs.
Well, NYSAPE has taken the liberty of contacting the NYS Education Department to discuss and separate fact from fiction.
We now offer Saugerties parents a rebuttal to Mr. Turner’s littany of claims, in the letter attached.
We look forward to discussing this and other issues more fully with you at the PACE forum on Wednesday March 25, 2015. Hope to see you there!
