I’d like to extend my utmost appreciation and thanks to the Glen Cove community, including the district administrators, GCTA, all district employees and the GC PTA for all your efforts in helping to pass this year’s school budget. Even though this was one of the lowest budget increases in many years, without all of your support, this would not have had such a positive outcome. This has been and continues to be a difficult and tumultuous economic year, and next year might be just as difficult as well. Our school district and all government agencies must manage with great fiscal prudence, offering the best educational opportunities for all of its students - and the voters showed their ongoing support for this Board with the passage of this budget.
In addition, I’d like to congratulate Ida McQuair for winning her second term on the school board, as she so greatly deserves this role due to her never-ending passion to improve our school district both educationally and fiscally. I also congratulate Grady Farnan for winning his first election to the Board and am sure he’ll be a good asset to this team over the next few years. A good effort and showing was also made for Roni Jenkins in her campaign and maybe there will be another opportunity there in the future.
Once again, thank you Glen Cove and see you at the next school board meeting!
Board of Education Vice President
