“Unfortunately, the year started without the benefit of many of the services that we traditionally have enjoyed through many Federal and State grants, administered by the Lakewood Board of Education,” the Igud Hamosdos wrote in a letter going home with parents today. “Those services include a school nurse, Title 1 and Chapter 192 instructional services – all tutoring, speech, and social services, textbooks and more. This is due to a deliberate attempt by those responsible to hamper our ability to run our schools properly.”
The Board has scheduled an emergency meeting for tonight to address these issues and “we urge all of our parents to attend so as to lend the proper support to our board members who are trying to overturn these decrees.”
The meeting will be taking place at the Lakewood High School at 7:00 p.m.
“Please do not speak, just show up. Our strength is in our numbers as a Tzibur,” the Igud Hamosdos wrote.
