School Board Majority Against Charter School
On Nov. 20 five Glen Cove Board of Education members voted aye and two voted nay regarding the adoption of a resolution against the proposed Covello charter school which is in the throes of the review process conducted by the SUNY Charter Schools Institute, (CSI). Voting against the resolution were Phil Enright and Bill Boeddener. The resolution will be forwarded to the CSI board of trustees and will be included in the record against the Covello application. That record includes thousands of letters from Glen Cove residents and elected officials in support of their constituents as well as a video tape of the board-sponsored hearing held two weeks ago.
