    Final Board Meeting of 2019 Honors Students, Brings Updates

    The Island Park Public Schools’ Dec. 16 Board of Education Meeting closed out 2019 with student recognitions and important information that affects both the district and community.

    The evening featured the announcement of Students of the Month who represented each grade at Francis X. Hegarty Elementary School and Lincoln Orens Middle School. Melina Pothos (kindergarten), Zachary Castell (grade 1), Sophia Santiago (grade 2), David Ospina (grade 3), Ella Mele (grade 4), Carolina Hernandez-Paratore (grade 5), Madison Brandt (grade 6), Nicholas Ruzicka (grade 7) and Jessi Morales (grade 8) received medals and certificates of excellence. Principals Cynthia Cameron and Dr. Bruce Hoffman read remarks from the students’ respective teachers that described their excellent character and positive leadership qualities.

    The meeting also included an update on the district’s lawsuit against LIPA. At this time, no decision has been rendered by Justice Emerson with regard to Island Park, although there is the strong likelihood it will issue a summary judgment in LIPA’s favor. The district is negotiating to keep the Barrett Plant on the tax Nassau County property tax rolls. The district will also work with State legislators to change the Combined Wealth Ratio that determines State Aid so that this source of revenue can be increased.

    If the PILOT is implemented, the district will consider filing a lawsuit against the County to obtain a “stay of proceedings” at least until a decision is rendered. The district will consider filing an appeal if an unfavorable judicial decision is rendered at the NYS Supreme Court of Suffolk County. The District will additionally consider how it can use unrestricted reserve funds to help mitigate the impact of PILOTs or new Property Tax Assessments, i.e., Adjusted Base Proportions on homeowners.
