Out-Of-District Students Removed

Written by Chris Boyle Thursday, 23 October 2014 00:00

At the Oct. 17 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education, Superintendent of Schools Dr. John Bierwirth discussed the recent investigation of students who have been illegally attending school in the Herricks School District, despite living in outer areas. Bierwirth said that 14 prospective cases were investigated and eight students were forced to leave the district.

 

Board of Education President James Gounaris said weeding out students who are attending school in Herricks under false pretenses is boiled down to one fact: it takes away valuable resources from the children of tax-paying members of the community.

A strain of the enterovirus was found in Southampton’s middle and high schools, but officials say it was not the virus that has caused the national EV-D68 outbreak.

 

The disease disproportionately affects infants, children and adolescents who lack immunity, according to the Center for Disease Control. School districts have been notified to follow New York State Health Department guidelines to combat possible infections.

Herricks Talks County Assessments

Written by Chris Boyle Wednesday, 08 October 2014 00:00

At the Oct. 2 meeting of the Herricks Board of Education, trustees continued to lay groundwork for the district’s financial gameplan for the 2014-15 year. 

Assistant Superintendent for Business Helen Costigan gave a report on the newly-assessed values of homes in the Herricks School District, from figures recently released by Nassau County.

 

“In Class 1, which is for homeowners, the assessment is down 2.2 percent...that’s a reduction from previous years,” she said. “What that 2.2 percent means is that people are challenging their assessments, which is lowering the assessment. If you haven’t challenged your assessment, you will probably end up paying a bigger share than someone who has successfully challenged and driven their assessment down.”
