At the Glen Cove Board of Ed, Times Change - Or Do They?
After opening the Glen Cove Board of Education meeting on Monday, June 17, board president Vito Abbondandolo asked for public comments on agenda items only. That gave the meeting a chance to begin with what was one of the last items on the agenda, the question of a change in the start and dismissal times of the four elementary schools in the district. Board member Dr. Rodger Silletti remarked that he had requested the item be put on the agenda because he had been contacted during the week by a number of concerned parents who wanted it discussed, and he wanted to give them the opportunity to have their say without "waiting until 10 o'clock to do it" during the comments from the public section near the close of the meeting.
