Enrollment in the Milford Public Schools has been on the decline for several years -- and it is projected to continue in the years to come.

Obviously, enrollment directly impacts the school district in many ways -- for now and into the future -- including the areas of staffing, facilities, configuration, programming and budget.

In order to plan ahead in a thoughtful, purposeful, and responsible way, the LongRange Planning Committee (LRPC) was formed last year and has been working under the guidance of Milone and MacBroom for the past 7 months.

This committee is comprised of parent representatives from each school in Milford, as well as Milford Public School administrators, elected officials, and members of the community.  Their work has included the deep review of substantial amounts of material, data, and statistics -- all central to future Milford Public Schools planning.

It is expected that the Long Range Planning Committee will formulate a set of recommendations and forward them to the elected Board of Education in March for their review.

Has anyone else seen the save Law and Foran signs I have only seen them in Orange. There is on one the corner of Peck Ln and Post Rd, and another by Home Depot. I have yet to see one in Milford. I find it weird that I have only seen them in Orange. The signs are actually not bad. Much better than the anti affordable housing signs in the Pond Point area.

Milford school system is the worst I have ever seen Who changes the schools to a school so far a mile farther for my son to go to school? And needs a bus to get there! How wasteful! They don't even teach the cursive writing! ! Horrible system !wish I stayed in Norwalk school systems they were so much better! And at least my kids were getting a better education! I regret the move to this school system! My kids will work in factory with this education! Just today my son was asking me to read a cursive writing letter in a book today ! He's in 4th grade? That's sad!
