Excellence in Education Volume 12, Issue 34, 5-18-18
A Letter from our Superintendent of Schools
On behalf of the Board of Education and administration of the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District, I extend my heartfelt thanks to our registered voters for approving the 2018-19 school budget. Thanks to your continued support, the budget passed by a vote of 756 to 275.
Your affirmation is the key to success for our students and our District as a whole. Your support enables us to maintain our instructional programs that are so vital to our students’ growth while integrating new initiatives that will enrich our curriculum and contribute to our students’ success.
Your support also acknowledges our efforts to minimize the burden on our taxpayers as we put forth a tax levy increase that fell way below our tax levy limit under the New York State tax cap.
Thanks to you, we can move forward knowing that our students will have the tools necessary to make new strides in academics, athletics and in the arts, and continue our legacy of excellence in education.
Let me take this opportunity to congratulate our newly elected Board of Education trustees Mrs. Nancy Castrogiovanni and Mrs. Maryann Santos and wish them a productive and rewarding term as we work together for the benefit of all students of our cherished District.
Dr. Laura Seinfeld, Superintendent of Schools
