The district and boe are laughing their asses off that they have to put on their concerned faces at the town meeting next week. It's already been decided that Beech Middle and Kirdahy will be closed. C'mon folks, how many times will you fall for the fake sincerity from these clowns?

Not that I am surprised by this because there is no accountability from the school board. They open Captree due to "projections" of increased enrollement. Then Simon says to the crowd, the past 7 years we have experienced a dramatic decline. So in 2004 the student body was on the decline and the "projections" according to Simon are only really good for 5 years, even though they project for 10 years. So opening Captree in 2000 wasn't necessary at all if we go by Simons logic.
What a huge financial mistake it was to open Captree! The district stood on it's notoriety of smaller class sizes, 18 to a class in fact.
Now we can't afford 18 to a class so we need to double up our classes. They won't go near the administration waste, heaven forbid, but close an elementary school, close a middle school. Make the children be herded into class like sardines, to keep the adminstration Simoon is trying to justify keeping.
Go back to sleep West Islip, nothing to see here, it's no accountability business as usual!
