Rename the Driscoll Library in honor of Amy Neale.
This petition made change with 309 supporters!
Amy Neale is retiring this year after an extraordinary 37 year career at Driscoll School. The teachers and parents planning her retirement festivities requested that the Driscoll library be named in her honor. The School Committee turned down the naming request, citing a policy that required a two year lapse between a person's employment in the Brookline Schools and naming a site in their honor. However, it is at the discretion of the School Committee to make exceptions to this policy and they have done so on at least six occasions since 2006 - the Driscoll theater was named for principal Carol Schraft, the Lincoln library for principal Barbara Shea, the Baker library for principal Tom Cavanagh and the BHS atrium for headmaster Bob Weintraub. This year they approved naming the Pierce auditorium for retiring principal Pipier Smith-Mumford. So far, they have not made an exception for teachers! This should be the year.
