In the 1790s and early 1800s, New York State passed laws establishing school districts and empowering its citizens to elect school boards. Great Neck established its first board of education in 1894 and it has continued as a proud institution.
As part of National School Bus Safety Month, James Popkin, Great Neck Public Schools transportation supervisor, calls attention to the illegal and dangerous practice by motorists of passing a stopped school bus with its red lights flashing and Stop arm extended.

When motorists fail to stop for such school buses, they present a real-time danger to students who ride our school buses, and they are committing a serious crime.
