Dear Glen Cove residents,

On behalf of the Board of Education and our entire district staff and faculty and administration, thank you for your support of the 2014-15 school district budget.

We were delighted to learn that voters approved the budget by such a significant margin: 740-330. This affirms the hard work of so many people, as we strive to provide the highest quality instructional and extracurricular program while minimizing the tax impact. The Board and administration spent several months developing a budget that is efficient, cap-compliant and educationally sound.

Community input and participation is paramount and you have made it clear that the children come first in Glen Cove. Thank you to all who attended our budget workshops and provided us with valuable feedback. Please continue your involvement and interest in the schools by attending Board meetings and school events.

Congratulations also to Barrie Dratch and Maureen Pappachristou on their re-election to the Board of Education. I look forward to continuing to work with the entire Board –and you– to ensure that Glen Cove schools are as great as they can be.

Sincerely,

Maria L. Rianna
Superintendent of Schools
