Turmoil continues in Tuckahoe; commissioner will decide fate of school board

Ok I have been reading for a while. I would like to put a few issues to rest.While I can see how the former principal at Tuckahoe would charm parents of students in grades 5 and under,the same cannot be said for those of 6th thru 8th grades.The list of short comings was long and exhausting.What became unacceptable was having the geometry teacher at the high school tell my child that "Everyone knew that Tuckahoe kids were awful in algebra".After serious invstigation ( I am a strong supporter of the wonderful teacher who taught my child while at Tuckahoe)I found that contrary to specific to the directions by the board the Math dept was told to teach to the state assessment test until Jan.Once the 8th grade had taken that test then and only
then were they taught algebra.This class took the REGENTS exam with less than a full school year of instruction.I happen to know who passed that test and BTW "Tuckahoe trip" if your child was struggling the way the entire class has been at Southampton you would be upset too..This school perpetrated a fraud .The Principal went against the Board's directions. The majority of parents support what the board did concerning the former principal.Our children's future has been put at risk because of a lie.Oh and no my child is not a poor student AP and all honors classes except for math but I am paying for tutoring to try to help my child stay on track .All this petition stuff is fine but I have spoken with Bosces personally and the Ny Dept of Ed about this whole process.The board doesn't have to do anyything different from what was done.Let the state decide.The last few board meetings I attended were an embarrassment.Adults behaving like children screaming at each other what are we demonstarting for our children?The entire thing has become a disgrace in my humble opinion.The abuse the board has taken from a small group of tax payers reflects I guess the only word I can come up with is what has been used here previously a MOB.I a not alone I am one of many parents do not be fooled by people who scream and threaten ."

Excuse me "Teachourkids",
This "Math issue " only came to the forefront after my child was more than half way through freshman year of high school.I was never given the oppurtunity to take summer school.This instance of fraud ,deception ,and power playing is typical of what used to happen at Tuckahoe.Be glad that the current board had the B*lls to do the right thing and will continue to do the right thing. Screaming in public at each other is pointless all the time.Th enext election should feild more people interested in doing what is right .I will be interested to see the numerous candidates for the next election."

Southampton School Board suspends high school principal and assistant principal, who are then hired by East Hampton

This whole thing seems incredibly STUPID.Whether Fine and Mondini were only interested in higher pay really is not the the problem .They would eventually find higher pay.Suspension w.pay is expensive wasteful and insensitive to those who really count the STUDENTS.Unless thse e being accused of theft, embezzement,or some other crime The Southampton Board really needs to come out with it."
