For the second year in a row, the teachers’ association cast a vote of no confidence in Superintendent Alicia Roy.

Amy Johnson, vice president of the New Fairfield Education Association, said in a Thursday school board meeting that the association stands behind last year’s vote, when 70 percent of teachers voted no confidence in Roy.

I just want you to know teachers feel their voices are still not being heard,” Johnson said. “It’s a top-down style of management, and we would really like to see a new road ahead of us.

“I’m just speaking for all of us and the way people are feeling,” Johnson said. “We hope that you consider what we’re saying.”
