APTC President Sue Heenan introduced Dr. Williams who gave a run-down of some of the bright spots in Amityville Schools. He stated that the 16 teachers retiring this year ensured that there would be no layoffs this year. He thanked those teachers and ATA for its anticipated help in getting the budget passed. There were questions asked from the audience regarding savings appropriations and school security systems. Sue Heenan asked for support for this budget because the children of Amityville would suffer under an austerity budget.
