UPDATE: Laria Named Glen Cove Superintendent

BOE announced that interim Superintendent Dr. Joseph Laria will remain with Glen Cove for next three school years.

The Glen Cove Board of Education named Dr. Joseph A. Laria as the district's superintendent of schools for the next three school years.

The announcement was made during Monday night's BOE meeting at .

, as a replacement for Dr. Laurence Aronstein, who retired after serving five years as superintendent.

"I've accepted this assignment because I believe that this community and staff want to do what's best for the children and community," Laria said. "This district could be as good as or better than North Shore or Locust Valley."

As the district prepares for the first budget review – set for next Monday – Laria said that the schools have a two-fold responsibility: to do the right thing for the children and the tax payers. 

"Anyone who breaches that, I will not hesitate to throw under the bus," Laria said. "People of this community send us the best they have."

BOE president Ida McQuair said that the decision to appoint Laria as superintendent will be "very beneficial to Glen Cove."

McQuair said that Laria will not require health insurance or a pension.

"I'm happy about the news on Dr. Laria," said resident Kathryn Casale. "Noting health care and pension will not be absorbed or affect the budget. It's stuff like that we need."

I havent read the comments yet (above) ...........but I do have one thing to say to the school board and to the superintendent........ In your adult education classes -- will you please finally add a class to teach people who want to learn Spanish! ............You seem to have classes for the spanish to learn English, but you don't have it for us non-speaking spanish people - to learn Spanish..........which is kinda ridiculous since we have such a huge community of spanish speaking people...... wouldnt you think that we would like to learn how to speak their language too?.... Please add this class in every future adult education classes.

Robert, would you please send me the New York State goverment link with the spending per child data. Bob, it is nice to hear you say that you do not demonize teachers. Today’s political rhetoric is directed at teachers as the problem with schools and taxes. I question what amount of this rhetoric is misogynistic. Last time, the school board did not even sit down to discuss the issues with the teachers. Will they work with the teachers this time around?

fyi, unless you retained a search firm, most are contingent and are only paid upon hiring someone. :)
