Despite the ice and sleet that created a two-hour school delay, the Mamaroneck School District Board of Education got down to business as scheduled Tuesday night, with Board President Rick Marsico noting that the community turnout was significantly low.
Superintendent Dr. Robert Shaps kicked off the meeting with his report, congratulating Dr. Miguel Munez, chairperson of Mamaroneck High School science department, for receiving the ”teacher especially influential in students’ development” award from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Munez was nominated for the award by former Mamaroneck High School student, Louis Sobel, who currently attends MIT.
Throughout the evening, the board encouraged community members to attend the Community Engagement Meeting scheduled for 7:30 p.m., Feb. 1st in the Hommocks Middle School library.
“We have worked hard to make it a meaningful evening where we hope to have a lot of interaction with the community; solicit your ideas; share your ideas and talk about this very important budget season coming up,” said Board Vice-President Robin Nichinsky.
Later in the evening, Dr. Shaps reiterated the importance of local involvement, including the upcoming meeting.
“We certainly invite members of the community to participate and respond to a host of guiding questions about the budget process,” he said.
