A Message from the Board of Education
 
In a recent ruling, Judge Spatt dismissed many of the claims filed against the district, which accused the district and officials of racial discrimination. In addition, the judge decided to dismiss claims of the existence of a hostile work environment and forced all three plaintiffs to have separate trials; both positive developments in this case. This is a huge victory for the district and we are pleased with the judge’s initial rulings. From the beginning, we felt that these claims had little or no foundation, which is supported by the judge’s decision. We are confident that the district will prevail on the remaining matters that the judge is allowing to proceed.
 
The Malverne School District is committed to providing a professional and friendly work atmosphere for all our staff. The district does not have a practice of discrimination of any kind. We embrace our diverse school community and strive to maintain an environment that promotes tolerance, understanding and respect for all.
 
As this is a legal matter, we cannot provide any further comment.
