Board Approves Payments

The Glen Cove Board of Education held a regular meeting last week at Robert M. Finley Middle School, discussing committee reports and business affairs.

Trustees David Huggins and Grady Farnan are both on the Facilities Committee, and reported they were planning to hold an “exit meeting” this week with Joe Fiorino to keep track of all pending projects and help make for a smooth transition upon his leave from the district. Huggins also said the Landing boiler installation is expected to be completed on time.

 

Superintendent Maria Rianna gave an update on the “Summer of Success” program currently underway, saying she had checked in with students that day.

 

“The students are really connecting with the teachers and are looking forward to returning to school this fall,” she said, noting that many of them are feeling more confident in their academic abilities. 

 

The board then passed a resolution to approve the fifth payment for the construction of the high school locker rooms, in the amount of $25,300.47, and approved the 2014-15 AS-7 Nassau  BOCES contract for certain student services.

 

The next board meeting will be on Aug. 25 at 7:30 p.m. in the middle school library.
