Now that we are in a full blown depression, will the dumb clucks of this district pass yet another school budget that murders taxpayers and fattens the wallets of teachers?
If the teachers made 150,000 grand per year, nothing would change (other than more people losing their homes). You can't get a job as a MCD teacher unless you are the son or daughter of a school board member or administrator, or you suck the MCTA's ass.
The standardized test scores suck, as do the tax increases soon to be forthcoming because apathetic a-holes that won't go out and vote NO.
I understand your frustration. Many of us feel the same way. The problem with the vote is that people don't want their children to miss out of 'perks' the school offers. I know, what 'perks'. All they do is intimidate and threaten us to vote yes. I can honestly say that I have voted no for quite sometime. We, as taxpayers, have got to ban together and vote no. Then mayvbe they will go back to the board and reconsider. It seems Paterson has done that...hopefully. God Bless Us all in these trying times. Keep your heart pure and vote with your heart. The rest will take care of itself. Have faith.

It's a shame something like this happened. I was in Centereach during the '90s (1994 through 1998), and I remember the school was starting to take a pretty significant downturn at that point. Drugs (mostly heroin and ketamyne) were over-running the school, and dealers did whatever. At one point, one of the security guards was even involved with drug dealing. The school was actually a really chill place at one time where everyone was allowed to go outside during their lunch / free period and hang out in the small courtyard area in the back (the exit door to this area was near the weight room). People from different crews would come together back there to play handball and smoke joints, lol. I mean it wasn't paradise, but people got along for the most part. But then in early or mid '95 or something like that, they started prohibiting people from leaving the building all together (the idea being that this would help make it easier to control the drug-related activity going on outside in the back).
I know this story is one particular instance, but I'm not sure how the school is doing overall. From the looks of things, it doesn't seem to have changed very much. Are people still allowed outside in the backyard during their lunch pd?
Despite all the b.s. that went on, I met some really cool people there, and I had some of the best times of my life. It also taught me that Selden / Centereach may be located out in the long island suburbs, but it can be just as bad (if not worse) than certain urban areas in terms of drug activity. And a lot of parents out there are completely clueless as to what's going on.

So there was a molestation incident at the school recently? That's unfortunate to hear. Was it involving a teacher and a student?

To give some people an idea of when I was there, some of the teachers I had were Mr. Nelson (history teacher who looked like Santa Claus), Mr. Haas (Occ Ed), Mr. Scionti, Mr. Byrne (quirky english teacher), Ms. Marchese (tired worn-out english teacher who looked like she wanted to change professions, lol), and my principal at the time was Mr. Smith (Paul Smith), who would give me detention, passroom, or suspension almost every other day.

In addition, I also remember Nick Capuano, if I'm not mistaken. Or maybe I'm thinking of his older brother. Not sure if he even had one. But I know that name for sure. It's so f'd up to see what happened to so many dudes from that school.

As a prior commenter said "The administration of CHS has a long standing history of trying to keep their schools problems out of the news." The only thing the parents would be notified of is Lice, check your children s head. Heroin and other drugs have been rampart since I know of 1998. So many have OD in this community and parents weren't notified back when my son went there. He started snorting heroin and obtained it in CHS. I notified the principal and wanted to know what we could do as parents. I was told it wasn't a school issue, so I joined the PTA council to inform other parents of what was happening in our schools and community. Too bad everyone wanted to keep it silent, so many of our children have died from this disease. I also notified Newsday, Channel 12 news, Channel 2, 4 and 7 News. Guess no one really cared enough back then. Now it is being reported as an epidemic. Well, it was 10 years ago too !!!!
Wake up and start caring about our children. ADMIT all school districts have a severe drug problem !! Now all those adolescents that have been battling this disease are now adults, with NO HOPE for a future or a JOB because we on Long Island have NOT helped them. We have closed detox beds and most people who do not have children that are addicted are so judgmental and uncaring. LONG ISLAND ..ADMIT WE ARE NOT HELPING OUR CHILDREN WHO BECAME ADDICTED!! We don't even do a good job of prevention !! What are we paying high taxes for? Salaries for administrators and Superintendents? Get rid of them and use their salary to help our children!!

I don't really get it. When I went to school there were always lots of kids doing lots of stupid things. I don't know if I was taught better, maybe my parents were more aware/more involved with my life and I was afraid of punishment or maybe I just had more sense but I never went along with any of it. I wasn't sheltered nor was I the kind of kid that did nothing but school work (I really didn't do too well). I hung out with and around kids who were all involved with drugs, but I stayed out of doing stupid stuff.

Is it just me or are parents forgetting that the ONLY way to stop the drug problem is to do what you can AS A PARENT to prevent your own child from using regardless of what is going on inside the school. I see a lot of parents making it out like the only way their child will get by is if they see/hear no evil. If a child never sees drugs, they will never use them...right? That's NOT the way people! You'll never get ALL the drugs out of the schools. The solution to the problem lies on the parents end. There were a lot of us that had drugs all around us in jr. high and high school but never ended up touching them...what does that mean to you?

Seriously, everyone keeps throwing the word prevention around. Am I the only one here who believes that the key to prevention are the value/disciplines taught by a PARENT from a very early age? NOT a teachers responsibility? I mean really, what the hell do you think teachers and schools are going to do to help prevent kids from trying drugs? What are they going to do once the kid IS on drugs? At most, tell the kids parents...but if the kid has no respect for their parents then what's left?

Wow. I graduated CHS in 94 and it was a pretty decent school. So sad. And yes, Visconti always was an ass****. Everybody knew he was a cluless yet driven fool. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised he eventually became Principal. I am certainly not surprised by the results of his 10 year reign of incompetence.

it is so true what you have said. my son went to chs and was a great kid all around until he became addicted to drugs. He was taught from a very young age all about drugs and its effects. i personally spoke to everyone of his friends, his friends parents, teachers, even went to the courts, attorneys, and rehabs for help. i left no stone unturned to help him. the rest of the community thought i was nuts for informing them that there kids as well were for sure doing the same. everyone had something to say other than let us help. othere\ than let us help you and our own children as well. not one of them would give me the time of day let alone open up and admit there child just may have a problem. my long term battle with my child is over now. he is no longer with us. the drugs are still in the highschools, and these children who were once optimistic on life are all getting worse and the newbies in the school are being introduced to these drugs as early as 6th grade now. they are fresh out of elemtary school. it doesnt matter how much you taught your child about drugs, when these kids are around this and see their friends doing it, their minds arent fully developed as adults, and it isnt as easy for them to say no. people who have not had this misfortune have no clue when they are judging the parents of a drug addicted child. it is true that the drugs will never be completely out of the schools. but when the schools turn a blind eye to it, it doesnt make the parents job any easier. they are fighting the parents due to not wanting it made public. these kids are victims. parents, teachers, our justice system.....it takes an entire community to raise a child. these kids dont want to be addicts. they had dreams too before they entered into this living hell of being an addict. they need help. the parents and children dont need to be looked upon as if they were horrible demonic human beings. we love our children as much you do. i hear there is a new law that just might be passes. it will allow a parent to put their child in a rehab without the childs permission. if that law was in place a few years ago, my child would still be alive. please dont look down upon these kids. they need your help. they are screaming for it. if more people got involved with helping instead of pointing fingers, maybe a life can be saved. it is a much better feeling to help someone up than to kick them when they are down. God bless all these children and their families.

not new to centereach thats for sure, and the school has always turned a blind eye. when heroin entered the school full force in the nineties it was ignored. kids were nodding out everywhere, three od/drug incidences the month of october 94 alone(that involved ambulances- countless others that didnt) this was the start of the now reported long island heroin epidemic. and it didnt just attack no good students, many honors and gifted students, kids that were well liked-this is what made it so dangerous to ignore- i remember trippin on acid in school multiple times, while in my gifted and talanted classes, i avoided heroin well at least long enough to graduate that is...i wish more was done, i wish we didnt get away with it, i wish i could get my life back the one so promising when i graduated 16th in my class, your kids will fool you and the school is ignoring the problems 10 fold at least it is finally getting in the news after almost 15years of cover ups maybe your kids life can be saved

seriously? really? when i was in high school my parents were so strict the only place i was off their radar was at school, and is was at school where i could get away with things. I was raised very well, extremely smart,albeit made very dumb choices, I think we all know as adults how little kids know about life even though they think they know it all. Most of these kids dont realise what they got themselves into before its too late, the drug prevention taught at school would show pics of 45 year old homeless guys in the city and that would compute as that would never be me, no matter what I experiment with that is not me. It is the schools responsability not to ignore problems. I mean how many kids had to get taken away from ambulance, the 6th precinct entering the schools, a kid killed his own mother with a hammer for god sakes(this same kid was taken out of the school in an ambulance for a pcp enduced attack om a teacher months prior)yet no parents were notified of the lightning fast growing drug, especially heroin, problem at the school. kids did not no what withdrawal was about they were partying with friends, having fun, what they though was kids being kids. in their head they were kids playing, they didn't know they were holding a loaded gun, the schools ignored it so unfortunately parents wouldnt find out before it was too late. you can say well if it was my kid i would have known, really? seriously? you think you would? they'd use at school, come home normal no evidense on them, and return to the school cafeteria with there allowance and lunch money the next day but they wouldnt be buying lunch today, or tomorrow, the school would see it, ignore it publicly yet privately bring over a tough asst principle from Newfield and be tighter on security, have the cops enter, but still mom and dad had no idea that is untill it was too late, there 15 year old honors student who skipped 7th grade now a full blown junkie, as well as 10 of their friends and 10 of their friends friends. the math adds up i mean come on look at the facts in 2000/01 they openned a fully staffed, fully functional county run methadone clinic for young adults under 22, that age has sinse been stretched, i new a 16 year old girl who's mom had to go with her to sign her into methadone treatment! there is a big difference between addiction and physical addiction that noones really understands untill they are in it, especially when they are 15 at school, chillin with their friends one of the few times their parents can't be there to chaperone!

enough said. from these posts you can obviously see why Centereach is in the state it is. People don't care, still don't want to listen. I guarantee it has touched all your lives in some way or you wouldn't be so heated. Nothing like white trash Centericans. So please keep burying your heads in the sand, and when your child, sister, brother, friend, or parent becomes the next statistic lets hope you can find your way out of the undertow. Say it "it will never happen to me" I dare you.

I haven't been on this forum in a long time. Just figured I would stop in to see if there was something new going on. Hey Slappy, when I would read some of your replies, I would actually LOL to some of your responses. Now, I come back here after all this time and find you are still here. Now I read your comments,(which aren't funny, just plain stupid) and I think to myself, "Wow" this guy has way to much time on his hands. To see you are still here, on this forum, without anything smart to say, is making me think you really need to do something with your life. Hey...I have an idea "Why don't you get one"!!!
