The WTA and the Westbury UFSD are Petitioning the State on Behalf of Our Students
To the Honorable Members of the New York State Legislature:
We, the faculty, administrators and staff of the Westbury Union Free School District, in a joint effort, write this petition to the New York Legislature outlining the concerns we have and challenges our students face. These are presently making an impact in the quality of instruction and, soon, in the decisions we will have to make to our academic program.
