East Rockaway BOE Sets Agenda For Next Week's Meeting

Fifteen resolutions will be voted on at the March meeting.

The East Rockaway Union Free School District Board of Education revealed what will be discussed at their March meeting during Tuesday night's agenda session at East Rockaway High School.

The monthly meeting will be held at East Rockaway High School on March 20 at 7:30 p.m.

A presentation on Response to Intervention will precede the regular meeting.

Four resignations will be voted on, including that of a permanent substitute teacher and a special education teacher for the East Rockaway after -- school program. Currently, the district is still looking for a replacement for the after -- school program position, according to Superintendent Dr. Roseanne Melucci.

The superintendent will also be recommending the termination of three temporary assignments. The three individuals being terminated are part of the substitute staffer list and have not worked for the district for an extended period of time. Each has indicated that they no longer intend to work for the district if called upon, according to the board.

“It’s not like they were fired. They were just taken off the list that they hadn’t worked on for (a period of time),” Trustee Kristin Ochtero said. 

Fifteen resolutions will appear for approval. Those resolutions include approving a special education tuition agreement with the Malverne Union Free School District, approving a contract with multiple student-related service firms and rejecting a bid for door hardware installation at Rhame Avenue Elementary School. 

The board will also be asked to approve a contract with Eve B. Feldman, a children’s author who is scheduled to visit Rhame Avenue Elementary School on May 2, according to Melucci.

Three copies of the book My 9/11: One Man’s Journey Through the Unexpected Events of 9/11/2001 were donated to the district and will be up for approval at the monthly meeting. The books are valued at $32 each, according to the board. 

The renting out of 60 spots to the for their summer camp season will also be up for approval. The camp pays the district $50 per spot, according to the board. 

Board members will be asked to approve expenditures from the capitol reserve fund for “building improvements and repairs established by voters of the East Rockaway Union Free School District at the annual district meeting held on May 20, 2008, an amount not to exceed $200,000” according to the board. 

These improvements include replacement of the rotunda doors and gutters at East Rockaway High School, repaving the playground, concrete repairs, lighting repairs at the front of Rhame Avenue Elementary School, and replacement of first grade doors and the fire escape at Centre Avenue Elementary School.
