The Montauk School Board went into executive session on Tuesday to discuss its plan to comply with a state-mandated teacher evaluation system. The district is the last on Long Island to approve a plan. The deadline is Jan. 19.
If a plan is not submitted to the State Department of Education by that date the district will lose its state financial aid. When the executive session ended, the board unanimously approved the program. Teachers were set to give their approval today.
I got the best present ever for Christmas this year. It came a little early but I already love it.
It’s a brand new titanium knee, given to me by Dr. Eugene Krauss of the Krauss Center for Joint Replacement in Riverhead. He was the fifth orthopedic surgeon that I saw and the first to find that I had tibial plateau necrosis, a dead bone.
