BOE Close to Ruling on Tutoring Policy Change

Village School students to be recognized; policies on bullying and tutoring on Great Neck school board agenda Monday.

The Great Neck school board will discuss Monday a proposed policy to disallow teachers from privately tutoring students who attend classes in the same building.

Introduced in October, the policy has left some faculty members, parents and students divided in recent public discussions.

If approved, the new rule would continue to allow teachers to tutor students from other schools in the district, just not their own.

Dozens of residents spoke for and against the issue at a school board meeting in October at Great Neck North High School.

A third reading regarding the tutoring policy takes place at the Cumberland Adult Center. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. Download meeting agenda here.

There will be an executive session at 6 p.m. 

Items of interest on the agenda:

  • Recognition of Village School students.
  • Third reading of the of the proposed policy on bullying, cyberbullying, harassment and sexting.
  • Reports on the 2012 summer programs including: recreation, enrichment and music.
  • Report on the technology program.
