Principal Question for Board is Hiring Practices
The Glen Cove Board of Education met on April 23 in the high school library which turned out to be too small a room for the number of people who came to the meeting. The audience included two security guards who, this newspaper has learned, were asked to come to the meeting as a precautionary measure by a board member. There was tension in the room very likely because of the number of residents attending the meeting with one issue foremost on their mind-the recent hiring practices used by the board of education in naming an interim principal for the high school and the expressed need for the school district, which has an almost 47 percent minority student population, to hire more minority teachers since approximately 4 percent of the 252 teachers are minority.
Marchers Protest School Board's Hiring Tactics
On April 21, a group of about 25 people marched in a peaceful protest of the Glen Cove Board of Education's actions in the recent hiring of a principal for the high school. The board named an interim principal, (the position was advertised as permanent), during one of its recent special sessions. The person's resume did not flow through the standard channels of the staffing committee dictated in the District Plan. The applicant was not interviewed by the staffing committee. The staffing committee is advisory in nature and its membership is approved by the board.
Glen Cove High School Big Red Sports
On Thursday, April 19, the Glen Cove girls varsity lacrosse team traveled to Massapequa High School to meet the # 1 seed lacrosse team on their home turf. The Big Red girls, coming into this matchup undefeated, were more than a little nervous as the opening whistle sounded and Massapequa put two quick goals in the net within 4 minutes. But it didn't take the Glen Cove girls long to settle down into their normal level of play - and Massapequa didn't know what hit them! Glen Cove moved the ball quickly down field, slowing down the offense and working the ball around the attack - they scored and tied the game at 2-2. Every player was playing aggressively and with a real purpose.
