East Ramapo Oversight Bill Presented

Rockland County representative are pushing for more regulation from New York State when it comes to the East Ramapo School District. Assemblyman Kenneth Zebrowski announced on Wednesday that he and fellow Assemblywoman Ellen Jaffee and Senator David Carlucci have been working to draft legislation that will allow a monitor for the district to veto decisions made by the board. The bill, which has been introduced to the legislature, follows the recommendations stated in the report submitted by the temporary state-appointed fiscal monitor Hank Greenburg and would require an improvement plan be put in place that will measure progress in academic and fiscal stability in the district, as well as an annual report from the appointed monitor. All three officials behind the bill agreed that the students are in need of a district that can be trusted, and the placement of a fiscal monitor will ensure that more programs and funding will be possible in the future. The legislation will now move on to the Education Committee in the Senate and Assembly.
