Speaking for a group of local residents, Santo Cipolla is asking the Sewanhaka Central High School District to revisit a 28-year-old policy that allows one community to attend any of the five district high schools, including Floral Park Memorial High School.
“It was a policy that was created to desegregate South Floral Park and a portion of Floral Park called Jamaica Square,” Cipolla said at a school board meeting last week. “It is our belief that there is not equal access to the schools and violates the equal protection clause under the Fourteenth Amendment.”
