On May 23rd, students from Robert W. Carbonaro School took a trip to the Capitol Building in Albany at the invitation of Senator Kaminsky. Assembly Curran introduced our students to the Assembly Floor and Senator Kaminsky met them on the Senate Floor.
Dear Member of the Valley Stream District 24 Community,
You may have received a letter from Legislator Gaylor that contains misleading information regarding Valley Stream School District 24. The letter talks about excess monies collected by school districts related to the Green Acres PILOT.
Valley Stream District 24 does not receive any money, not even one dime, from the Green Acres Property or Green Acres PILOT. Therefore, there has been no excess money collected by this district. School tax increases related to the PILOT had to do with matters outside of our control, and we have taken a very aggressive stance in working to overturn this matter.
While the proposed legislation has merit, the letter contains erroneous information about our district.
Please feel free to call my office regarding this matter.
Dr, Edward M. Fale, Superintendent
