After much hemming and hawing, the East Hampton School Board meetings will be televised, a decision reached on Tuesday night following a presentation by LTV, which has agreed to broadcast the bimonthly meetings on Cablevision at no cost to the district.
Patricia Hope, the board’s recently elected president, inquired as to the cost of including Spanish subtitles. According to the most recent New York State report card, the East Hampton Union Free School District is now 41 percent Latino.
Two construction projects are under way at Springs School.
One will expand the front parking lot to add more spaces and improve traffic flow. The parking lot, which now has 20 spaces, will get an additional 10 to 12 spots.
The second project, the creation of a walkway along Ed Hults Lane near the back of the school, will improve safety for walkers, a particular concern during morning drop-off.
