Script from the video:
Hi, I’m Board of Education President Nicholas Ciappetta with a wrap up of our Board of Education
meeting on November 18, 2020.
Our meeting started with Dr. Bennardo providing us with an update regarding the District’s preparation
in the event that COVID-19 rates continue to increase.
We then recognized Mr. Charles Ciravolo who recently stepped down as the Chair of the South
Huntington Educational Foundation after 17 productive years. During his time as Chair, SHEF raised tens
of thousands of dollars that went directly to the benefit of our students. These projects included rock
climbing walls, a dance studio, iPAD carts, and coding robots, among many others. The Board of
Education thanks Mr. Ciravolo for his leadership and unwavering dedication to the children of the South
Huntington School District.
During the business portion of our meeting, the Board adopted the newly required document retention
and disposition schedule, accepted a donation from Ten Tigers in support of the District’s newsletter,
and approved license agreements with the Family Service League for the District’s pre-kindergarten
program and the Spirit of Huntington for space that they occupy at the former public library on 2
On behalf of the Board of Education, I hope that everyone in our community has a restful and healthy
Thanksgiving and remind everyone that our next virtual Board of Education meeting will be on
December 9 th.
