SAVE THE DIRECTOR OF GUIDANCE POSITION!
We, the undersigned parents, taxpayers and employees of the Somers School District, implore Dr. Blanch and our Board of Education to examine all possibilities and find other areas where cost-cutting can be achieved to bridge our projected 2016-17 budget gap. We understand the difficulties facing our leadership but the Director of Guidance position is much too important to us, to our children and to the future of Somers education. We feel that there are other positions and programs that can be consolidated or eliminated that will help to bridge our budget shortfall. We cannot accept any plan that includes the Director of Guidance position being eliminated, we must, collectively, strive for a better alternative.
