NEW FAIRFIELD, Conn. — A collection of New Fairfield parents, teachers and community members continued to press for school superintendent Alicia Roy's resignation at a meeting on Thursday, according to the Danbury News-Times.

Keith Conway, president of the New Fairfield Education Association, the teachers union, said that Roy had 'lost the ability to lead the district,' the News-Times noted.

The launching of a Change.org petition calling for a vote of no confidence in Roy by the Board of Education two months ago started the groundswell of opposition to Roy, reported the Danbury News-Times.

The petition, available at this link , points out the district's removal of teachers while Roy received raises, the slipping of the district in state rankings, and various lawsuits, among other concerns.
