When our organization began in 2014 the threats to Fine Arts programs in the Norwood Public Schools were immediate and dire. Since then NFACT has raised funds and other groups have done the same. A more arts-friendly School Committee has found ways year-by-year to avert the worst. Now the days of getting by are over. Serious layoffs will happen if the current broad-based drive for an Operational Override fails. Teachers will be gone who may never come back. Programs will be gone that may never come back. But if we succeed there will be a permanent step up in revenue that will go to Fine Arts and many other essential services on both the school and the town sides.
