Another North Babylon crowning achievement! Congratulations North Babylon School District, you have created a corrupt educational system on which many students, parents, and teachers rely!
This is just another reason on the vast list of North Babylon failures to do things right!
Fcuk Mr. Shevlin!
please calm down!!! He aint principal anymore!!! I was an NB student a year ago and every1 in the school knew Shevlin had a drinking problem. But my question is why didnt Laria do anything about this years ago??? every1 in our school knew it and Laria didnt? thats bull.
I have one good thing to say about Shevlin and that is that he always did his job in the school and never harmed any1.

Not only does the ex-principal get to keep a job, with same salary, his friends on the school board who we vote for (FYI) created a position for the person who drove drunk. In fact all you have to do is know someone, graduate, and drink with them & you have card blanche access in the district.
I THINK THE PEOPLE OF N.BABYLON NEED AS A COMMUNITY TO ELECT A SCHOOL BOARD THAT IS LOOKING AT THE BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILDREN AND NOT SELF GRATIFICATION ONLY!

Had your principal been an African American male, I know for a fact as well as you , that your attitude and opinion would have been conpletely the opposite. It's what you call unequal justice in the real USA. You would not have been so sympathetic to give him opportunity to remain within the district. The DWI would have resulted a request to leave the district or a buy out. As a lifelong taxpaying resident of NB, I have witness more negative aspects within to North Babylon School district, than you would ever experience in "10 of your lifetimes". Shevlin still got off easy. You don't have a clue.

mmmm... wow... my fav principal got dwi. well i agree wit some ppl that he should be punsihed, but dont u think hes been punsihed enough?? i really feel bad for him because he tries soo hard to keep kids out of trouble. When he wanders around in the hallways in school he is always happy. I heard bout the rumors wit him drinking in school, c'mon someone would have caught him already! so all these rumors gotta stop cuz u dont no there tru, and that dont make him a BAD PERSON!! Please if ur not from NB AND U DONT NO HIM PERSONALLY then stop saying how "bad" he is.. if he was that bad he wouldnt of been principal. I also agree he does need help right away so let him try to get things straight and possibly become principal once again. thank you n have a nice day =)
Best luck to Mr. Shevlin =)

What got totally overlooked in this whole oreal is that not only is Mr. Schevlin not fit to be a principal, but North Babylon has a history of hiring "good old boys" who don't include minorities.
Lula Noriega-Walker was the assistant principal of NBHS for 20 years. She was a stellar educator who did WONDERS for the school. Yet, when she applied for the principalship, because she was an African Americn/Latino woman, they refused to hire her.

I applied for a teaching position in North Babylon Public Schools in 1991. Joyce Flynn, who was that that time the Assistant Principal for Personnel, told one of the principals I interviewed with that, while I was qualified, the parents in North Babylon would have her head on a platter if they saw a 6'4" tall black man in their child's classroom as a teacher.
North Babylon has earned the bad reputation it has gotten.

north babylon high school has finally done something right. mr. ray williams is now the principal of the high school. after knowing lula walker and gene cuneo I can say that we have now gotten the strong principal that we used to have. ms. walker and mr. cuneo were two of the best principals the district ever had. I feel mr. williams will be as wonderful as they were.

Mr. Williams is the worst thing that could happen to NBHS. He was Hartnett's whipping post and he did whateva the screaming banchee wanted. Now look at the two of them. I never saw such rude and inconsiderate people as the two of them at school board meetings the way they disrespect studetns going up for awards while they chew food and drink, and talk to each other. It is unjprofessional but whoever said either of them are professional when it comes to education.

Half the black population even disapproves of Williams in the school. He is ineffect and incompetent. Did I mention egotistical and arrogant?

That's okay. I understand that NBHS FINALLY got another female administrator. However, when I went to Irene Seuberts Mothers funeral. I was told that they only hired her to get the fed government off their back. They are planning on firing her at the end of the year.
I hope she pulls an Ilexa Endes on them and hires a lawyer and sues them. North Babylon is one of the most racist school systems on Earth... and it looks like it's staying that way.

This guy needs to be canned. But let us talk about double standards here. The sack of crap at the Roosevelt School System was busted for cocaiane and he went through "rehab" and kept his job.
I hope the People of Babylon have more balls than the suckers in Roosevelt.
That was not Roosevelt. THAT was Westbury, and it was Pless Dickerson. I grauduated Westbury High School, and Mr. Dickerson was a fine man, a good social studies teacher, and a great guidance counselor, and a stellar principal

If her name sounds familiar she recently ran for Town Clerk of Smithtown (she lost) and her father Dan ****, was the Town of Smithtown Superintendent of Highways a few years back and is a former NYC cop turned attorney. Jill ****-Shevlin and Don Shevlin have 3 or 4 children and were embroiled in a very ugly divorce recently. Now sure if the divorce thing is over yet. Maybe the pressure go to him.
How sleasy is this scumbag that he would try and date one of his students ,,,all the parents of every student should be outraged and force him to quit immediately.No child will be safe from this predator.Fire him now and keep our children safe from this lowlife molester

Yes, I remember well when he was a new teacher and a very handsome one! Yes, it was the talk of the school that he was dating a student. I have heard that they are no longer together? As I said, when I was at the age of going out with friends to local bars when we were in college, he would be right there, getting drunk, and looking for someone. I cannot forget how disappointed I was, since I always thought of him as a cool teacher who was also a nice person up until that point!
Sue Sciallaba was her name,,,in 86'what scum would date a student,,pedboy Donnie

Dear clueless,
Said wife never was in his class, was never on his softball team and certainly was not a "star softball player" I am sure she would thank you for that compliment. They are not embroiled in an ugly divorce. Stick to the facts of the story and leave his wife, and her family and her children out of it..... Get a life and find something else to do. Make your time worthwhile maybe like she does.... Volunteer your time instead of wasting it on the internet commenting on newsday articles.
O.k there Donnie -boy you set it straight,who is Sue Sciallaba ,,,86 grad smithtown east???No divorce pending huh?You and Jill don't even live together you lying sack
