NYSD Hosts Legislative Roundtable

IMG_3924On November 19, 2015 Fanwood had the opportunity to host a Legislative Roundtable. All the 4201 schools except one were represented Hinman & Straub, 4201 lobbyists, believes the well-attended event was a success.

Speaker Carl Heastie arrived for a tour before the roundtable session began, but could not stay the entire time. We were appreciative of him for taking the time to learn more about Fanwood and the 4201 schools. He was impressed with what he saw at Fanwood – particularly the HS Geometry class.   Being a math major, he was able to engage in fluid conversations with the students and teacher.   He remarked he was impressed with the rigor of the class.

Other legislators in attendance were Senator Andrea Stewart Cousins; Assemblywomen Catherine Nolan (Chair of the Assembly Education Committee), Shelley Mayer and Sandy Galef; Assemblymen Steve Otis and Tom Abinanti.

All in all, each legislator expressed commitment to the unique mission of 4201 schools and working with us. They also indicated they now have greater awareness of our issues and challenges.
