Hochman is too busy reading Diane Ravitch's endless blog, sucking up to illegals in Mt. Kisco and tweeting about Michael Brown to care about making this school the academic envy of the county. Please let him be. He's a real class act.

I'd like to understand the basis for the classification as a reward school. What is considered high performance? As compared to what? What factors going into the assessment. Before anyone jumps to wondering why their school isn't on the list as mine aren't one needs to understand the details first before jumping to conclusions that there is something wrong with the school vs how the assessments were made

We need change at Bedford Central School District! The superintendent should resign - it is unacceptable that there are not more schools listed here in the district. Our taxes are sky high already and continue to ask for more money every other year. As a resident of Poundridge with children in the pound Ridge elementary school I am sickened by the callous and fiscally irresponsible actions of the board. Check out the superintendent Jerry Hochman's tweets and you will understand that he is not as focused on education as he should be. I pray that a voucher system will be in place by the time my children go to middle school so that I can send them elsewhere.

Pretty disappointing that Pound Ridge is not on this list. What makes PR so different than Bedford Village? How can the gaps be that dramatic? Given the taxation structure in the BCSD and PR's dismal performance, what's the BofE's next play? Hope there will be some forthcoming explanations. Cue the angry parents...

Congratulations Tuckahoe High School!

What is going on with the Hendrick Hudson school district? Time for a new board.

Only one school in Yorktown, but 4 schools in Lakeland. Dr Napolitano and the board need to explain why their other schools did not make the list.
