Something stinks in West Islip and I think The DA shoud start checking things out ....
That Bus circle that doesnt fit buses but makes a great parent drop off at the back of westbrook and the relocation and replacement of the kiddie playground in back of the school where (Not La Rosa) is renting seems very convient just one year before the school that wasnt on the closing list had the final vote by La Rosa (who has nothing to do with the school that leased space at westbrook for a sweetheart deal. Id like to see the corp tax returns for South Shore childrens Center over the next few years and see who profits . She should resign from the school board before she is arrested. or better yet she would look good in Orange .... To many conflicts in intrest I cant wait to see the zoning decisions for Shouth Shore Learning Oh wait that covered too ....

I saw on their facebook page, written on January 2, a goodbye letter regarding their "split".

So this place is called the "South Shore Children Center, Inc.", from what I've read, right?
There has to be written bylaws present at the principle place of business right? They've got to have a list of corporate officers and their responsibilities and the time and place of their corporate meetings. Their written bylaws must indicate the rules and regulations that will govern the company, not to mention a list of their share holders etc.

I think you're right, it does stink of impropriety. If it's not signed yet, I wouldn't sign it. I'd back out.

Duty of Loyalty/Conflicts of Interest

Trustee/board members owe allegiance to the institution and must act in good faith with the best interest of the institution in mind. The conduct of a trustee/board member must, at all times, further the institution's goals and not the member's personal or business interests. Consequently, trustees/board members should not have any personal or business interest that may conflict with their responsibilities to the institution. A trustee/board member should avoid even the appearance of impropriety when conducting the institution's business. Acts of self-dealing constitute a breach of fiduciary responsibility that could result in personal liability and removal from the board.

The board of trustees/board of education should have a written conflict of interest policy that clearly sets forth the procedures to be followed in instances where a board member's personal or business interests may be advanced by an action of the board, including a provision that the trustee/board member may not participate in any decision to approve any transaction where such conflicting interests may be advanced. The policy should also include a requirement that each trustee/board member provide full, ongoing disclosure to the institution of any interest the trustee/board member and/or his or her family has in any entity that the board transacts business with. The policy should be reviewed and discussed with the institution's attorneys and auditors prior to its adoption.

WI financial statements were sent to Albany in the last week or two about two months late. This guarantees late payment of state aid to them. To delay knowing it will effect cash flow is odd.

You are right. However this step would be correct, honest, unbiased, transparent. In other words, the board of education in our town will never approve it.
If you really want to get a rise, read the district's Code of Conduct Policy. The board of education has it written in such a way that they can NEVER be held accountable for anything. The district even has to pay the boe's attorney bills if one or more of them are accused of wrongdoing. How do ya like 'em now?
