BOE President: We Will Continue to Make Sure No Child is Left Behind

boe signing contractsPHOTO: While sigining the new IDEA and other educational service contracts for the new school year, Board of Education President Zlatkin said “the Board will continue to make sure that no child is left behind.”

Zlatkin, who has been at the forefront of the recent crisis, was the one who called for the emergency meeting that resulted in swift action.

Within two business days of the emergency meeting, nursing and IDEA services commenced. The remaining educational services have not yet been finalized.

“We are still awaiting for guidance from the state on 192,” Zlatkin says. “Until then, we can’t finalize the contract.”

As a result of the emergency meeting, “children with diabetes and severe allergies will have the security of knowing that an experienced nurse is on hand in case of emergency,” Zlatkin says. “Children serviced under IDEA will start attending school. No longer will they have to endure the feeling of being left behind.”

Zlatkin also thanked board attorney Marc Zitomer and Joseph Roselle, who negotiated the last minute details of the contract on Sunday, their day off.

  1. Thanks for all those involved.

    Please note: I was told that BOE member, Joel Schwarz and IDEA Coordinator, Mrs. Adina Weisz were extremely instrumental in getting the IDEA contacts rolling.

    Mr. Schwarz verified that he worked with Mrs. Weisz, State Monitor, Mike Azzara and others until late Friday afternoon.

  2. Helen, nice try! You tried fighting this till the very end but the truth prevailed! You can’t rewrite the law even when you need it to support your agendas.

  3. Just make sure the child your “not leaving behind” is allowed to be here & pays his fair share of taxes. No reason why all the paying customers have to finance all the people who don’t belong here in the first place. Common sense huh?

  4. According to reliable information all HS girls were placed. There are a number that do not want to go to the schools they were placed in and want to go only to older schools that are full.We need new schools every year to accommodate the huge growth. If parents are allowed to say they only want to be placed in the older schools and leave the new schools empty ,then obviously there will never be enough room
