Glen Cove School Board Reviews Policies
The Glen Cove Board of Education met in Gribbin Elementary School on Monday, Dec. 18 and zeroed in on the district's existing policies regarding "weapons or other dangerous devices" and student attendance. The policy on weapons was developed with references from the Gun Free Schools Act of 1994; Education Law Section 3214 and Article 89; the Individuals with Disabilities Act; the Family Court Act and the New York Code of Rules and Regulations Part 100 and 200. The policy on student attendance was strengthened on this, its third review in as many years in an effort to reduce class cutting by high school students. School board member Phil Enright was unable to attend this meeting; member Dr. Jeff Spector came to the meeting late, and after the discussion on both policies had ended.
SUNY Trustees Reject Covello Charter Application
On Dec. 19, the State University of New York trustees heeded the recommendation of the Charter Schools Institute staff, rendered on Dec. 14, and voted not to further advance the Covello Charter School application proposed for Glen Cove. The rejection of the Covello application is welcome news to hundreds of Glen Cove residents who mounted a boisterous campaign against the Covello school proposal. Also during their meeting on Dec. 19, the SUNY trustees voted to proceed with 12 proposed charter schools for further review and inquiry. As to the reasons the Covello application was denied, the spokesperson for the Charter Schools Institute, Connie Cullen, said, "As a courtesy to the applicant we do not publicize the reasons until a letter is sent to them outlining the deficiencies in the application." Ms. Cullen said that letter would be sent by late February and its contents made public at that time.
2000 Comanche - Thank You
After completing a very successful season in which the Comanche's competed in seven leagues or tournaments, finishing in the money all seven times:
Big Red Sink Baymen 52-48
With the holiday season just around the corner, roundball season is in full swing. Last year's Glen Cove Basketball County Finalists opened up their season on Monday, Dec. 11 with an exciting 52-48 home victory over the Baymen of Oyster Bay. The Big Red opened up with an 11-0 run to set the tone for the night. Even though this year's team is a complete set of new faces, this Glen Cove team wants to play the transition game with pressure defense. The Big Red used balanced scoring to put away the Baymen. Glen Cove was led by Craig Fredric - 17 points, Craig Hansen - 13 points and Chad Gleason - 12 points. This year's Big Red roundball version will be focused on its "Big Men;" this threesome conspired for 33 rebounds, led by senior Craig Fredric with 13.
