BMS Parent Petition to Protect Room 17
Dear Board of Trustees
We the undersigned, pursuant to the Feb. 7 meeting with four members of the Board of Trustees, are seeking written assurance from the board’s executive committee that any and all decisions regarding a change in use for Room 17 would be withdrawn pending further consideration of the impact on Brooklyn Music School, its students and community.
We believe the continuation of group piano, ensemble and other classes that use Room 17 are vital to the students and to Brooklyn Music School. We fear that the loss of substantial revenue and precious space from converting Room 17 into a classroom would be a tipping point that would lead to an ever cascading decline in resources for Brooklyn Music School, its students and community.
Please provide this assurance regarding Room 17 in writing to the Committee of Concerned Parents & Students. This step would ensure that further engagement between the Board of Trustees and the students and parents of Brooklyn Music School may proceed on a foundation of good faith, trust and mutual respect.
