New assessment may replace Regents Exam; but not now

Not too long ago, high school students had a choice between a local diploma and a Regents diploma.

Mineola School District Superintendent Dr. Michael Nagler profiled PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) during the workshop meeting on Nov. 3.

Winston Manor sidepiece modification approved by village board

The Winston Manor project is getting a facelift…again. The Mineola Village Board voted 4-1 to grant Polimeni International LLC the ability to change its 36 senior housing unit, The Churchill, from senior condominiums to senior affordable rentals.
