Holly Chadwick started this petition to Sandyston-Walpack

On 2/5/2020 the Board of Education of SWS announced at their meeting that they will rename the library at Sandyston-Walpack Consolidated School to honor the Superintendent Jeanne Apryasz.  They have ordered a plaque that will be placed to identify this honor.

This act was done despite the community’s vocal opposition to the lack of leadership by the Superintendent.  Staff, parents, and students have all vocalized the discord and negative climate change that has occurred at the school since she started in 2016-2017. 

The Board of Education are stewards of the school building.  They should not unilaterally rename a room, section, or other permanent structure of that building without having discussion with the community that they serve.  

A long time and admired staff member, Mrs. Green,  created a culture of positivity and love of reading in the library.  That former staff member was ‘pushed out’ by the Superintendent and resigned.  There was no acknowledgement by the BOE after reading Mrs. Green’s letter of resignation at their meeting (almost 2 years ago) directly warning of the negative culture introduced by Jeanne Apryasz.

Please sign this petition to let the BOE know they have over stepped their role by placing a permanent marking in a building that does not belong to them.  We, the parents and residents of Sandyston and Walpack, demand this plaque and renaming be rescinded immediately.
