it's called "theft of services." besides throwing out the student if caught, the school district can, in fact, sue for the cost of educating the illegal student if they do not legally reside in their school district.

we don't have enough students to have sufficient sports or accelerated classes for our own high school. i lived in ip and sent my kids to lb, best thing we ever did. they both excelled academically and in sports. by the way they were not attacked by gangs and there are drugs in every high school.....
people get over yourselves, if the board is going to argue against eachother how do you expect the community to come together?
Questions: If you are ipforeva,(Island Park FOREVER) why'd ya move???? Did the school district catch onto you? Best education you could have given your children starts at home. Too bad they'll never know how to be honest citizens. With parents who cheated the system and stole services from a school district you did not live in, speaks volumes!

Don't forget tomorrow 3/18 is voting at Lincoln Orens...i'm hoping everyone agrees on giving the choice of Long Beach and West Hempstead a chance by voting to approve the 5 year contracts.

<quoted text>will someone please tell me how property values will rise? the school is no better than wh!
That word "Hempstead" is the kiss of death, the plague, a cancer. People from outside the area have no idea the difference between Hempstead and West Hempstead, they just hear Hempstead and freak. I know because it took me months to convince some one from Queens that there is a difference. That being said I still sending my kid to WHHS.

Sure I have a ton of other reasons. 1. It would save Island park taxpayers about $200,00 per year just based on the lower tuition that LBHS would charge. If you add in the new busing contract, you are proabbaly talking about $350k + per year.
2. LBHS is a closed campus, WHHS is open for juniors and seniors. I dont want my kids wandering around a town taht is 45 minutes away from my home.
3. West Hempstead School Board takes IP totally for granted, and for the last 40 yeasrs refused to allow any IP parent or Board member to sit on any committee. Long Beach has agreed to allow IP to be represented.
4. West Hempstead does virtually nothing to try to prepare the middle school students for High School. Long Beach has agreed to do a ton of things to help IP kids get intergrated.
5. Isaldn Park and Long Beach are closely connected and have a long history together. they share clubs and teams etc.

I could go on and on.
Yep well now in 2016 all the fights and issues between ip and lb students. There is history there history of not liking each other. Island park students really only talk to students from piont look out...lido...and E. Atlantic BEACH because they share common values.
