The Oct. 10 Board of Education Meeting of the Valley Stream Central High School District honored district leaders and educators. 

Superintendent of Schools Dr. Bill Heidenreich and Board of Education President James Lavery presented a commemorative plaque to past Board President John Maier for his dedication and service to the students and community of Valley Stream. They also recognized Central High School Principal Dr. Joseph Pompilio and the building’s staff, as Central was named a New York State Education Department Recognition School under the Every Student Succeeds Act Plan. 

According to the NYSED, “Recognition Schools are identified as such because they are among the top performing under ESSA for performance, student growth and/or graduation rate; met or exceeded either the school or state measures of interim progress for English language arts and mathematics, rate of Chronic Absenteeism, and College, Career, and Civic Readiness; and met the federally required 95 percent participation rate in the English language arts and mathematics assessments.” 

Last school year, Central received distinction by the New York State Education Department for graduating young men of color at one of the highest rates in the state of New York.
