Thank you to the Manhasset community for turning out in record numbers on June 18 to vote and participate in the process of governing our public schools. We thank everyone who contributed to and who engaged in the discussions surrounding the 2013-14 budget and for understanding the inherent challenges.
Communication—engaging in a healthy and respectful exchange of ideas and perspectives framed by an understanding of the facts and challenges—is an important cornerstone of community life and of the democratic process. We must continue nurturing and educating our youth to a high standard of excellence in a fiscally responsible manner, while operating within the laws, mandates and fiscal constraints governing public schools.
The challenges remain. We hope that the Manhasset community will sustain the level of engagement and dialogue that has taken place in the last few weeks so that we can effectively meet ongoing challenges. We look forward to working together and continuing the dialogue as a community committed to excellence in education.
The Board of Education,
Manhasset Public Schools
