The Clarkstown Board of Education held a first reading on a revision to an existing policy on Thursday. Board trustee and Policy Commitee member Wendy Adolff explained a date needed to be added to the policy on class size. She emphasized there was no other change to the policy.
"We were trying to put a date onto that policy," she said.
Listen to her explanation in the video clip.
Board President Joe Malgieri thought the date should be Oct. 15.
"It's my personal opinion but I think Oct. 1 is too early," he said.
Board members asked Adolff to speak with the teachers' and principals' unions for their opinion about what date should be included in the policy.
