Last week, I attended the Board of Education meeting and listened as several parents and students gave testimonials in support of providing funding for full year music and art programs in the Ansonia school system. They spoke about the positive impact of music and art on all our children and provided the board with studies and statistics proving the effectiveness of music and art therapy for children with special needs.
The Board of Education President, Mr. Nimons, and the Superintendent, Dr. Merlone, graciously thanked our residents for bringing their concerns to the table and reassured them that based on the budget they were given and taking all aspects of education into account, they believe this was the best decision on how to use the funds.
