From Amy Nolen

Questionable school board ethics & a poorly attended annual meeting led to Croydon's '22-'23 school budget being slashed by 53%, jeopardizing the education of all Croydon students. We need your help to back our fight!

Croydon students' educations have come under attack, and we need your help. 

This year's annual school district meeting on March 12, 2022 was poorly attended, allowing 20 residents to slash the school budget for the 2022-2023 school year from the proposed $1.7 million to $800,000. This cut was suggested by an active member of the Free State Project and was supported by his wife, the Croydon School Board chair. 

The reckless move jeopardizes the education of all Croydon students- those attending K-4 in Croydon Village School, the nation's oldest, continuously-operating, one-room schoolhouse; as well as those in grades 5-12 who are attending area schools, thanks to our district tuition program commonly known as "school choice". $800,000 neither allows Croydon to meet our financial obligations to the districts with whom we have worked in partnership for years, nor supports the quality, foundational education offered in "Little Red". '

Please consider making a contribution, and help us STAND UP FOR CROYDON STUDENTS. The irresponsible budget cut can be undone, but there are ramifications the town will feel regardless. The fight against this move to undermine public education may incur fees for legal advice and support and already involves funding a public awareness campaign. 

*Any funds raised that are not needed for this immediate fight will be retained, should further challenges to school funding arise in the future, OR will be donated in support of Croydon students, for supplemental and extracurricular resources and activities.
