Three Spots on K-L Board of Ed Up for Grabs

Nominating petitions are due April 22.

Informational packets are now available for folks interested in running for a position on the Katonah-Lewisboro School Board of Education, according to the district.

Residents will vote May 21 to fill three vacancies on the board, which is made up of seven community members who volunteer their time. They serve staggered three-year terms, and the panel typically meets about twice a month.

Prospective candidates must submit nominating petitions by 5 p.m. April 22. To learn more, pick up a packet from Kimberly Monzon, the district clerk, at 186 Waccabuc Road in Goldens Bridge. She is there from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The three board members whose terms are up are: Mark Lipton, Peter Breslin and Peter Treyz. Lipton is undecided about a run for re-election; Treyz will definitely throw his hat in the ring for another run and Breslin is definitive about not returning to the board.

What the district really needs to do is re-evaluate the Director of Special Education. This individual recently said that a valid and justified intervention for a special needs student would be for the teacher to "go outside, bring in a twig, put the twig in the commode and let the child pee on it". Now the Director has characterized a student as a dog. Would anyone, would any parent or educator in their right mind - - justify this and do such a thing?????????
