Maintaining Art Education for Ridgefield Public Schools
We oppose reducing the quality of Ridgefield Public School's art program by sharing art teachers across the district. To have only three teachers servicing all six elementary schools will result in fewer opportunities for our children to engage in the creative process. These art teachers will have little chance left to even teach a basic curriculum, let alone work on time intensive clay projects, collaborative projects with classroom teachers, or a yearly art show. Please look elsewhere for savings in the BOE budget - savings that do not affect our vital arts program.
