    Nov. 6, 2007 at the UFT Headquarters was a day to remember. It provided Chapter Leaders with an opportunity to network with UFT officials as well as gain insight into strategies for improving safety in our schools. Therefore, I would like to take this opportunity to thank the UFT for making “Safe and Secure Schools” more than a mantra but an action plan that which works. Furthermore, I would urge all Chapter Leaders to attend the safety meetings throughout their borough whenever possible.

    Case in point: It is only through the UFT’s continued support and effort that our Hunts Point School is seeing a safer, cleaner, and hazard-free environment. Thus, we can now say good-bye to asbestos, coal burning furnaces, crumbling and leaking ceiling, mice and roach infestation, deplorable restrooms, lead-paint and more.

    Certainly, there is more work to be done in our Hunts Point Community. We have joined with administrators, legislators, the NYPD et al to focus on and improve the quality of life issues within the school community. Together we can create a viable and livable community devoid of crime-unabated.

    Our new initiative is an out-growth of the Seminar on School Safety which I attended at UFT Headquarters under the direction of Sterling Roberson, UFT Director of School Safety. Roberson truly talks the talk and walks the walk with a cadre of professionals at his side.

    As UFTers we have a Network behind us. We just have to make the call.
