Dozens of West Hempstead community members turned out Tuesday night to with school officials regarding the fate of the former Marion Delaney School, which will be vacant beginning next June.
Since Nassau BOCES has decided not to extend its lease of the Eagle Avenue building beyond the 2012-2013 school year, the West Hempstead school district, which owns the 51,155 sq. ft. property, will need to decide how best to utilize it. (Not to mention, find a way to make up for the $582,283 loss in annual revenue that will result from BOCES' departure, the amount the district collected in rent from them in 2012.)
