Westhampton Beach school officials urge residents to protest tuition rate changes

It would have been nice if Jessica had contact the sending districts in regards to the WHB Boards decision to request their residents to send a letter to the NYS Dept of Ed. in regards to the tution formula. The letter indicates that the district provides an excellent eduction for the students attending and that the burden of taxes falls on the shoulders of WHB school district residents. WHB send about 30% of the students and the sending districts 70%. The sending districts pay more than there fair shair of the cost of education via tutiion payments. They also support the grammer school which is included in the formula even thought they do not use it. The formula for special education change last year which resulted in an increase retroactive to the sending districts and when WHB was asked if they could work something out for the sending districts they replied " It's ' the Senca Fallls Formula". If it was a good answer then, when it impacted the sending districts, its good answer for WHB now.. They can't have it both ways. Pay up " Jun 17, 09 3:21 PM

Family, friends say goodbye to Quogue Village Police officer

I was upset that the Village of Quogue flew the flags at half mast for Officer Kappel. I don't understand how they could do this as the officer was not killed in the line of duty but while a partticipant in an illigal act. Flying the flag at half mast is an honor and to do so in this case was a sllap in the face of all law abiding citizens. I feel for the families as this senseless act has made them the victim and we should do whatever we can to support them as is the practice in this community. " Jun 30, 09 12:49 PM

Remsenburg And Speonk Taxpayers Will Vote On $5.7 Million School Expansion Project Tuesday

I have been living here for over 30 years and all of my children have attended the Remsenburg Speonk School. When the school was builit the core area,(the library, cafeteria/gym/auditorium,) was built for a population of 120 students. When my children attend the school they had 90 students. The core was built in 1964 and not much has been done to it since. We now have 180 students and next year they expext 190+ The current library will be torn down and replaced. The libary was a tempory structiure not intended for permanent use. The computer room will be moved to the new library as that is the best place for students doing reserach. The old computer room will be made into instructional areas. In regards to special ed., by having it done in house the district saves the taxpayer hundreds of thousands of dollars. BOCES is a very expensive resource which the district has tried to avoid by keeping the students in house. Ther private schools can pick and choose their students and do not have the same unfunded State mandates that public schools have. I also wonder how many residents have the same kitchen they had in 1964. Our school famiily has grown and the building needs improvements to meet the demand. Vote yes. " Dec 2, 10 4:29 PM
