The district’s students and staff had the chance to meet with and showcase one of the district’s most innovative programs during a recent visit with New York State Regent Roger Tilles.

After sharing some of his favorite poems with Minnesauke Elementary School’s third-grade classes, Regent Tilles had the chance to experience the school’s elementary STEM program by visiting a class. In addition, Ward Melville High School junior Ben Catalfo was commended by the Regent for his tenacity and unparalleled advocacy for all students in New York State. Ben’s efforts resulted in the state agreeing to discount a flawed question on the June 2017 Geometry Regents.
