BOE Approves Third Campus For Pre-School Children, Pending Approval From County Superintendent

boe building tiny tots meetingJUST IN: The Board Of Education re-voted this morning on the usage of the Bais Rivka Rochel site approving its use as a third campus for English speaking children, pending the approval of the County Superintendent. Since voting it down on October 13th, new information was received however. More English speaking children have enrolled in Campus 1 – the Linden Avenue campus – and so the issue of English speaking children has become void.

In addition, allegations were made by the Administration that the idea was religious based.

Another issue brought up was that Campus 3 – Bais Rivka Rochel – would only service at most 16 children out of the original 57 Tiny Tots children in the program.

Furthermore, most of the children have found alternate arrangements making this unnecessary.

In face of all this, the Board, to their credit, approved the opening of Campus 3 contingent on the opinion of the County Superintendent.

Should he give the green light, it will begin immediately.

Mr. Ostreicher – who previously abstained from voting – was absent for the meeting.

  1. finally after 2 moths of all these kids out of school there might be some hope. i am not sure who wrote “most of the children have found alternate arrangements making this unnecessary” however if other arangments means that these children are not getting the services and therapies they are due under the law then the other arangments are not what the BOE is required to provide

  2. They finally did the right thing! Now the children will be receiving the services they need. And many jobs will be saved as well because of this. Kudos to the BOE members for recognizing their past mistakes and correcting them. In todays politics that is rare. I’m just not sure why they made it contingent on the County approval, let’s just hope it’s not a cowardly way out for the BOE members.

  3. most of the alterante arrangemnets are not optimal for the childrens achievment
    but parents had no choice but to settle for less unfortunately

  4. While I think the amount of kids that “NEED” services is grossly overrated. Yes some kids have some issues, but nothing that wouldn’t be solved over time. Or if these people had the litmus test of ” would they pay for it out of pocket? and they answered “no”, then we don’t have to provide services. For those that need it, this is definitely beneficial. ( I pay about $10,000 a year for my special needs son and no I am not rich, I just cut to the bone, shnorred and borrowed!)
    That being said….
    I hope the costs will come down because there is no – for profit running the program. And maybe all the kids that are willing to pay for a full time daycare will offset the costs of the special ed kids.

  5. when my taxes go down will speak – tax money is always needed- special education is paid for by taxes- our brothers might as well benefit!!!!!
