We don't want you there so please don't bother. Nothing worse than gentrification pioneers and their pioneering attitudes. We don't want you or need you and NO it is not better just because you are there.

Abbot has nothing to do with which entity controls te district. Jersey City is not the only Abbot district. In fact the original court case of Abbot v Burke which led to the funding was in Jersey City.

Jersey City To Lead Nation In Special Needs Recreation?
#6
Newbie
Newbie


Dear Councilwoman (Diane) Coleman:

I was delighted to learn about Jersey City’s plans to improve our parks, and as a native who has returned to the city of my birth — now with my own family to enjoy the progress that has been implemented, the revitalization efforts to improve the quality of existing parks is tantamount. It is with the aforementioned anticipation that I humbly offer suggestions about enhancing our existing parks with necessary play zones for special-needs children.

Currently, no places in our city offer gated areas with harnessed swings; cushioned jungle gyms, play ramps and other stimulating equipment for our special needs population with autism, cerebral palsy and other gross motor disabilities such as blindness and deafness, to name a few of the impairments that our young children and their families live with. The void of zoned play areas forces families with the means to drive beyond our city limits to seek out the “perfect” play area for their children or for our low-income families to rely on the public school systems to provide daily outlets that are safer than their neighborhood parks. These realities guide me to ask the Jersey City municipal government to implement an initiative to include areas for disabled children in parks throughout the city.

My definition of the ideal playground originates from my own tireless journey to locate parks that are equipped with harnessed swings, larger rubberized jungle gyms, spinners, fire engine replicas for hide-and-seek and unfortunately: nonexistent visible signage to inform parents with able-bodied children that zones for disabled children means that special-needs boys and girls have preferential play time on such labeled equipment. Providing zones for special-needs children would drive home our government’s message to create a community for everyone to enjoy.

Jersey City stands at a pivotal crossroads; it can become the Gold Coast for the wealthy and well-heeled residents who benefit from the verdant and vigilantly manicured playgrounds of Newport Green; Hamilton and Van Vorst Parks; while working class and poor citizens accept the ravaged and often times neglected fields that predominate Ward F. Some opponents of my proposal may highlight the forthcoming premiere of Berry Lane Park as the harbinger for social equality and renewal — that it was once a toxic landfill but is now a symbolic 21st century bridge that links the haves with the have-nots of our great city.

I do applaud all of the rudimentary efforts that your cohorts have pursued to narrow the social and economic gaps that are endemic in our city, however, I believe that we must review the negligence we have exhibited toward our disabled population as people who deserve the same access to recreation and a fair quantity of outdoor play equipment on which they too can enjoy the sun’s rays. You and I are both mothers to special-needs children so I do know that an initiative of this magnitude would benefit thousands of families like ours, and place Jersey City at the forefront of advocating for disabled children in this manner.

I offer my commitment to volunteer to assist you in forming a committee that consists of local organizations, the Jersey City Special Education Department’s Parent Advisory Committee and anyone else who has the fortitude to recognize that funding play zones for our disabled children is for the public good.

I am very proud to enjoy our city’s continued renaissance while hoping to play a vital role in providing all our children with areas to play in the sunshine.

Thank you for taking the time to review my proposal.

Re: State report shows less violence, more bullying in Jersey City schools

This report is a joke. Incidents are purposely swept under the rug by school administrators to avoid being labeled a violent school. This of course results in more incidents as students figure out there are no consequences for their actions, which in turn further disrupts the learning process. Teachers are held accountable for student test score data in high stakes, high security texting, while administrators scrub clean school violence data to keep themselves protected from being labeled ineffective.

I was also in attendance on Saturday. I was impressed with the new administration as well as the residents. One problem with cops on the best is lazy ones that just hand out parking tickets to residents rather than look for real crimes. The beat cop tax!

Seymond is the owner operator and did a fantastic job on my roof. He spent extra time repairing the rotted wood on the front pediment which was not part of the job quoted and no extra charge. Excellent service and a great job.

Re: Upcoming Board of Ed meetings

Sterling, Carol, and Angel can all vote, it is their Constitutional Right as an elected member of a governmental body. They were elected by the people of Jersey City, not the teachers. It is there duty to vote on all matters pertaining to the Board of Education. They were issued a threat, which amounted to a simple "opinion" that they could not vote. They can vote. This is such a ridiculous situation that will come to light eventually. This is Animal Farm.....

What happened you ask........

The Board of Education met to vote on the contract for Jersey City Teachers....A pact that was negotiated and approved by Dr. Epps and a state appointed mediator.

• The pact was recommended by a mediator, a neutral third party. The mediator made it
clear in his report that both the union and the district had to “give” to create a reasonable
settlement.

• The salary increases in the contract are prudent, and in line with the settlements in other
school districts.

• More teachers retired at the end of last school year than were hired in this school year.
That fact alone produces a multi-million dollar savings for the Board of Education.

• The contract creates immediate savings by ending the perfect attendance bonus.

• A health insurance opt out provision could create substantial savings in health insurance
premium costs for the district, but only if the contract is ratified by the Board.

• The contract contains provisions that reduce prescription drug costs for the Board, but
only if the contract is ratified by the Board.

• The tentative contract settles the outstanding issues of the move from the State Health
Benefit Plan (with a Traditional Plan component) to the School Employees Health
Benefit Plan (without a Traditional Plan component).

All told a contract that is fair and saves the district millions of dollars.

At this meeting the BOE voted to table the vote on the contract until the next meeting on May 20th at PS #11 at 6:00 PM. This motion was made by Ms. Sebron, seconded by Ms. Thompson, and passed by a 5-4 margin with Mr. Connors, Mr. Waterman, and Ms. Lester joining Ms. Sebron and Ms. Thompson. It was tabled due to threats made by the Gov. and Commish of ED. against the newly elected members of the BOE. These threats are disenfranchising the voters of Jersey City, as well as compromising the constitutional rights of those elected to serve.
