An Important Community Message Regarding Racial Discrimination Lawsuit

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.

Malverne High School was abuzz this summer with activity at the sixth annual Summer Science Camp. All graduating eighth graders of Howard T. Herber Middle School were given the opportunity to apply for this program, which was made possible through a grant program administered by Stony Brook University’s Center for Science and Math Education. A select group of 18 incoming freshmen who exhibited exceptional strength in science were chosen to participate in daily lab work that explored the worlds of microbiology, cell biology, forensics and genetic engineering.
