8/21/2020 McKiernan issues statement on Henry Barnard School closure
STATE HOUSE – Rep. Daniel P. McKiernan issued the following statement today in response to the closure of Henry Barnard School:

“It has come to my attention that Rhode Island College has made an abrupt decision to close the Henry Barnard School. I implore the college administration to work with the parents and numerous stakeholders, many of whom are my constituents, to help us understand the nature of this decision and to work toward a solution that will maintain the school’s viability as a successful part of the fabric of our state’s education system. At the very least, parents and teachers deserve a level of professionalism when it comes to the future of their children’s education. I stand ready to assist RIC’s administration to help find a solution.”
