Another $600,000 and another sham of a voting process. More people showed up at Rita's ice cream then voters at the high school. Best of all is the school demanded several shows be scheduled that night so tired parents showed up to vote yes.
The marketing concept,"vote yes for the children", was great marketing.
Now someday,it will say,"vote no for runaway cost".
Amazing $95,209,811 each and every year. Who will buy a house here?
Tell the potential homeowner that your tax is only $10,000 a year and they will runaway.
Its all about the good ole boys in Deer Park, and yes its time to find a third job to pay these salaries at the school.
If this runaway spending in the district continues, more homes will be forclosed and for sale.
Homeowners are quietly moving out of this neighborhood at a 10% rate each year.
If your employed in the district, you wouldn't care anyway.
Time to organize a voice in the community. We are doomed without one..........end

Here we go again. Another school budget increase? Did they fix the fence gates in the high school track yet after ten years? Or are they still holding it open for the football team entrance,hahhhhaaa. Another good old boy group, maintenance. What about the locker room. The ceiling vents are so filled with dirt and dust the roof fan cant get the foul odor out of the locker room. The vent is overhead and two feet over a 6 foot persons head!!!!
Does anybody there see anything?
No toilet paper, no hand soap, no paper towels. Where is all the supplies going??? Germs, germs, germs.
Its 2010, where is supervision. Do you know a maintenance supervisor earns over $60,000 and needs skills? What political or patronage appointee is this??? Come on people, WAKE UP!!

To John on Nicolls, You are ignorant! You have no idea what you are talking about. It makes me sick that you are putting our school district down. Deer Parks salaries are much less than others, yet the teachers truly care about their students, tenure is not freely given, and our schools are always clean...with soap and paper towels. If you don't like it...MOVE!

NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION !
THE ENTIRE SYSTEM IS A MONEY PIT. WITH ALL THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS JUST IT COST IN DEER PARK EACH YEAR $95 MILLION DOLLARS,ALL THE PROPAGANDA THE LONG ISLAND SCHOOL DISTRICTS RAIN DOWN ON THE TAXPAYERS IS JUST FLUFF.THERE ARE NO JOBS AND MORE SO, THEY ARE CLUELESS AS TO THE OUTCOME OF OUR CHILDRENS EDUCATION. ITS BECOME A BLOATED AGENCY, JUST SEND IN THE MONEY AND MORE NEXT YEAR AND THE YEAR AFTERWARDS. IF THATS NOT A CRYING SHAME, I DON'T KNOW WHATIS!
WE NEED POLITICANS WHO ARE WILLING TO FOCUS ON THIS DESTRUCTIVE TAX AND TAKE ACTION. ITS DESTROYING FAMILIES AND HOMES AND IT IS OBVIOUS NO ONE IN THE POLITICAL ARENA CARES. THEY ARE CANDYPANTS ON THE ISSUE. HOW ABOUT A DISTRICT ATTORNEY WHO CARES ALSO, NO WHERE IN SIGHT...
WE NEED NEW PEOPLE IN OFFICE WHO WILL ADDRESS THIS MESS. THE TRUTH HURTS!!!!

If your numbers are correct, each resident is paying $3,400.00 per year for school or $16 million per sq. mile- and that's just property taxes, not federal $$$$. HOLY COW!!!! Your tax dollars go to pay for pensions- forget about the twenty administrators doing the same job. I love it when the government handles your money for a service, I can't wait to see the health care savings.

Intersting forum. So,if you live in Deer Park, a homeowner that is, it cost $3400 a year to walk down the block just for the school tax there?
I recall, the rave pat on the back articles that they are saving a great deal of money with new boilers and energy green programs. How could your tax go in Deer Park go up $600,000 in one year??
The high school has a 3.9% drop out rate, or maybe its people fleeing back to the city.
In NYC the subway is $2.25 to ride all day and the streets are swept at least twice a week.

The schools have an Inspector General and an investigative group to keep spending in order and investigate cousin Jimmy's pencil and pen business, free gifts and elaborate trips are taboo.
Not here though. Long Island needs the State superintendent to do something, anything instead of just collecting a nice check and sending his children to private schools.
When the next election comes around ,if these politicans think they are going to escape this issue they are mistaken. These elected losers are having fun with their titles.

Where did Deer Park go wrong in part a stepchild of Babylon Town government.

On Long Island you have a small buch of local people sit on a school board that have backgrounds in YAK and refuse to address the spending issue in fear of negative propaganda concoctioned up by the Board of Ed.
All of Long Island needs the homeowners to have a Islandwide rally to end this runaway tax.
This tax is like drug addiction, they just need more and more until they go to rehab.
The school districts need serious rehab they are the sole responsible entity destroying the American family and dream, owning your own home.

Extortion money- you hit the nail on the head when you say that "The school districts need serious rehab they are the sole responsible entity destroying the American family and dream, owning your own home." Parents work their butts off to pay these taxes. 2-3 jobs per house. We don't get the lush annual raises the teachers do. We will be living on cat food when it comes to our own retirements, while the teachers will retire in style. How do they say "thank you"- they send home homework for stuff not covered in class, so after along day at work we get hours teaching our kids and overseeing their homework. AND every year they send home a "supply list" that costs at least $100.00 per kid- where do these supplies go? I have no idea, I never saw projects that used some of the supplies, but the teachers like to dump the contents of your supply list into a community bucket.

A while ago, someone mentioned to consolidate all Nassau and all Suffolk Schools. A great idea.

In the process we could eliminate about 40% of the administrative positions. These positions are breaking the backs of the taxpayers

Albany are you reading this???? SOS....SOS...SOS

Check out "this week" front page article on Deer Park School District. It reveals district administrators COUNCIL RETREAT, sounds like a mini vacation, to prepare themselves(sic}, buildings and staff for the start of the school year. I guess they are not prepared....Oh Well...
Didn't they ever hear of coffee and donut meetings?
Administrators are part of management. They earn a yearly salary, not hourly therefore, the meeting or COUNCIL RETREAT should be held at anytime with no pay!!! It shouldn't be called a retreat. The public is offended over words meaning rest and relaxation in this taxpayer funded junket!

When are they going to get on board with the country?

This school tax is like drug addiction, they just need more and more until they go to rehab.

Will the new Governor cackle and strut like a turkey or is he going to soar like an eagle? I already know the answer...gobble..gobble....

Actually, no one got paid, it was done at the district office and it was to get recertified in first aid and go over any new information for the upcoming school year. Administrators work all year round. There was no vacation...most staff went back to their buildings afterwards to prepare for the students coming back.

recertifed in first aid? You could find that in DVD on the web.
Recertified with what? A certificate that has benn duplicated on a computer program available to the world...fill in the Name of the individual and such?
What a total waste and it further confirms federal intervention is needed. they just don't get it.

I hope these candidates for governor say something positive to reorganize this Long Island school mess. If they dont. I wont vote for them.
Long Island schools really is in need of intervention from authorities.
Where is that idiot that the governor appointed to oversee the Education in New York? Is he still partying over his appointment?
We havent heard from him and what he is doing to ensure the Rosyln and Shirley school district scam doesnt happen again in another district.

Has anyone heard from that new NYS school superintendent appointed by governor Paterson?
Not ony did the prior one run out the door over the Lond Island school moneys scams, he didn't even know how to get to Long Island.
This new appointee was able to get a substantial raise and now we havent heard from him since he moved into his new luxury living flat.
We haven't heard from him since being appointed.SShh
What is he going to do in assisting Long Island homeowners on this mess and clean up this runaway spending and comp club called LIBOE?

The school tax is destroying the family unit it claims to protect from dumbness.
They are destroying the family unit and health of the families since Moms and Dads are working two and three jobs to pay the tax.
They have destroyed the quality of life here on Long Island. Reading that school superintendents here are the highest paid and the retirement of one has more holes then swiss chees since they could be rehired after they retire in another school district to make a new $200,000 + salary is a SCAM !!!
Where is the governors office involvement and concern, certainly not here. Perhaps he is only concerned with Manhattan, specifically Harlem where he and his buddies live a very comfortable life out of the publics real eyes.
Sound Familiar???? Does anybody care? Are there any boarded up houses on your block? You should care, the end is near, the value of your house has slowly deteriorated with each school tax increase.
A home in the former ghettos of NYC are now worth 5 times what yours is? Thats just in 20 years time...Whats wrong with this picture?
Thanks school districts for your total incompetent operation,thanks again..........TAXPAYER

The facts are overwhelming. As silence prevails until the next budget,another foreclosure takes place.
With absolutely no intentions of saving any money,the beggars will take steps to pass the next budget in MAy.
Again,they will use every trick in the book, to increase the budget. They will destroy another family,so that runaway spending is protected.
Th New York State Governor, who now is a lame duck until Cuomo takes over,has gone silent in his final days, still on the payroll, still silent on another pending MTA tax on bridges and tolls,the state of the Union is bleak.
Long Island, has become the school extortion capital of the county.
In Deer Park,$95,201,000 will never be enough. With a bloated payroll, and incompetent board members,the price of homes here will continue to plumet and the turnover of homeowners will skyrocket to over 10%.
Your new neighbor will be foreign to Long Island and prehaps New York. They will help to demolish the quality of Life here,just as the school budget destroys another dream and another food pantry gains a customer.
All this for the protection of greed and people drunk with power, the Long Island School Districts. Again, just place a toll on our main streets in every town and charge a fee to drive down the block, what else is left? Nothing..........
