On Valentine’s Day Sacred Heart Greenwich’s Head of School Pam Hayes sent an email to the school community announcing the formation of a working group that will re-examine the school’s policies on personal expression. The message is as follows:
Sacred Heart Greenwich community:
I would like to share the news with you that we are forming a working group to facilitate a transparent, thorough examination of the environment for independent thinking and the articulate expression of ideas within our curriculum and student life.
The working group will examine the clarity, consistency and appropriateness of the School’s policies regarding personal expression and present a report of findings and specific recommendations for improvement to the Board of Trustees before the start of the 2018 – 2019 school year.
The Board of Trustees is currently forming a broad-based leadership team, which will include students, parents, alumnae, faculty, administration, religious, and other interested members of the Sacred Heart community.
The Board of Trustees will also identify external, professional resources to help organize this initiative, set it in motion and guide its activities as soon as possible. We will announce the leadership team for the working group shortly and will update you on our progress regularly.
I am sure that our community will participate enthusiastically in this important dialogue.
