Are they smiling because they heard the joke an Islip Cluster superintendent made about West Islip’s Westbrook Elementary School being named by the New York State Department of Education as one of the top “Highest Performing” elementary schools in New York State---only to have West Islip’s own Board of Education close the school? Can’t make this stuff up folks: NYS Department of Education released the names of 250 schools in the state which have earned “Reward School” status for having the Highest Performing or Highest Progress under the ESEA Flexibility Waiver. Out of the 250 schools, only 16 Suffolk County School Districts are on the list. Westbrook Elementary School put West Islip on that list. Ironic isn’t it? Congratulations to Westbrook’s Principal, Jack Maniscalco, all of the Westbrook teachers, staff and to the students of Westbrook for earning this honor! http://www.p12.nysed.gov/accountability/ESEADesignations.html

Thank you for that info, Wendy. Westbrook community, you should be proud of yourselves! Congratulations! Board of Ed, you should be ashamed of yourselves.

That sounds like quite an accomplishment. The parents, students, and faculty of Westbrook should be very proud! In reading through the link provided above it says "Five (5) schools will each be awarded up to a maximum of $150,000 each year for two years and up to $300,000 for the entire grant period." Can West Islip still apply for this grant or is this opportunity lost because Westbrook is closed? $300,000 would have gone a long way in helping run our schools, especially after we learned we were never short as much money as the BOE led us to originally believe.
