Board of Education Statement on North High Parking Lot

The members of the Great Neck Board of Education unanimously support all the line items contained within the May 2017 bond, which was passed by an overwhelming majority. We have heard the concerns of the neighbors regarding the parking lot at North High School, reviewed the procedures that led to the Bond vote, and are in agreement that due process was followed. Great Neck Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Prendergast, issued a letter regarding the project to the newspapers and shared the same letter at the last Board meeting (posted below). The decision making process has been explained by a representative of the North High School Shared Decision Making Committee, and it is clear that the safety of our students is the sole concern for the project. We continue our wholehearted support for the construction of this additional parking lot.
