Walcott Departs East Ramapo

Yesterday, while a guest on WRCR’S The Morning Show, assemblyman Ken Zebrowski stated that he had just been informed East Ramapo Monitor, Dennis Walcott had been named the new President and CEO of the Queens Library. According to the library, the new position would begin March 14th. The East Ramapo School District has had a long history of trouble and it was concluded that a team of three monitor’s would be brought in to examine the system. In August 2015, Walcott, a former New York Schools Chancellor, was appointed by the state to head the team. By December, Walcott and his team submitted a report outlining their recommendations. One of the recommendations was to appoint a permanent monitor with veto power. The Journal news reported this morning in a statement from the state Department of Education, “Walcott has agreed to be available pro bono while his successor is being chosen and to help with a transition plan“.
