State Education Department to Make East Ramapo Announcement

New York State Education officials stated this week that they will be making an announcement regarding the East Ramapo School District when they hold a meeting in Rockland on Thursday afternoon. Education Commissioner MaryEllen Elia and Regents Chancellor Merryl Tisch will be attending the announcement, which will be open to the public. Earlier this month officials with the Education Department stated they were working on a plan for the district, after two separate versions of an oversight bill failed to pass the State Legislature, one of which would have placed a monitor to provide oversight. In recent weeks parents and residents within the district have been protesting past decisions made by the board as well as seeking the resignation of Superintendent Joel Klein. The announcement will take place at the Cultural Arts Center at Rockland Community College at 1:30 PM.
