To the Editor:
I am writing to draw your attention to a proposal for a policy change affecting Milford families brought to the Board of Education by Dr. Feser. The policy (P-5117) is in favor of eliminating the practice that has been in place for 21 years of allowing families to request that their child go to a school other than the attendance area in which they reside. This would apply to children in any/all grade levels.
The policy change was brought forward at the March 14 Board of Education meeting and public comment was heard at the March 28 meeting. The 28th meeting was standing room only with just a small fraction of Milford families that were aware of the proposal in attendance.
