GC School Board Talks Budget and Busing
The Glen Cove Board of Education met at the high school on Monday, March 4 for their second discussion of the proposed budget for the school year 2002-2003. The proposed spending plan stands at $51,855,298, an increase of $3,745,019 over the current budget, but it is still a working document subject to change before its adoption by the board. This meeting focused on the first part of the instructional section, dealing with proposed staff increases, upgrading of computer services programs and the possibility of the district purchasing automatic external defibrillators, which could be mandated by the state as early as July. Glen Cove's budget apportionment is in close alignment with the 56 school districts on Long Island, and its $14,500 expenditure per child falls within dollars of the Nassau County average.
