Board Of Ed Adopts 2014-15 Budget

After months of reviewing the budget line items page-by-page, the North Shore Board of Education adopted the 2014-15 Budget Proposal on April 3. Earlier in the year, trustees agreed not to exceed the cap. This year, the proposed budget is under the allowable tax levy limit by approximately $300,000. On May 20, the community will vote on a total budget of $95,850,329, which represents a budget-to-budget increase of 1.98 percent from last year. 

 

In mid-January, Superintendent Dr. Ed Melnick presented the initial 2014-15 budget proposal to the board. Prior to his initial presentation, Dr. Melnick met with the principals and administrators of each school building and removed approximately $2 million dollars.

Trustees then spent months reviewing the line items on each page and removed over $1 million from the preliminary budget proposal

 

On Tuesday, April 24, Meet the Candidates Night will take place in the high school cafeteria and on May 8, the board will hold a Town Meeting/Budget Reading.  Voter registration will take place on Saturday, May 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Central Office, 112

Franklin Ave., Sea Cliff. Voter Registration forms are available at all of the schools in each of the main offices or in the Central Office/Administration building. 

 

There will be two “Budget Gathering” sessions open to the community:  Monday, May 5, at Glenwood Landing School in the GWL Theatre at 9 a.m., and Tuesday, May 6, in the North Shore High School library at 7 p.m. 

 

The Budget Vote/Election of Trustees is on Tuesday, May 20 in the North Shore High School gymnasium from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Information regarding the school budget can be found on the district website at www.northshoreschools.org.

News

Sea Cliff author Margaret Gay Malone is one of 11 authors whose short stories have been selected for publication in the Tuscany Press Anthology in 2015. 

 

The story, Jimmy’s Gift, centers around a boy whose generosity and selflessness put him in danger on a brutally cold and snowy day. Malone says it is based on a true story after reading a blurb in Reader’s Digest a few years ago about a 12-year-old boy who walked through the snow to help deliver food baskets to those in need; and it turned out that his family’s name was also on the list of those in need of help in the community.

Members of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club and their families will be treated to a scrumptious Thanksgiving meal on Tuesday, Nov. 25, an event that has become an annual tradition for local families. 

 

This will be the 14th year that Andrea Correale, the president of Elegant Affairs Caterers, has donated this festive dinner, which in the past has served more 250 adults and children with a full turkey with all the trimmings followed by the always-fun ice cream bar. 

 

I can’t even believe it’s been 14 years,” says Correale. “And so many of the same people come back year after year.”
