"I am really flustered and I don't get flustered," sputtered Patrice Gianaca of Freeport when The Leader called to congratulate her on winning Mother of the Year. Son, Steven, 17, with a little help from son Chris, 22, nominated Mrs. Gianaca as...."the universal.mom...an amazing woman that embodies the title!" Pat Gianaca and her husband Peter are residents of Freeport for 24 years, most of their married life. Coming from Franklin Square, the couple found a great sense of community in Freeport. "Maybe because- it is an incorporated, village, but Freeport nurtures involvement and welcomes families. I would not want to live any other place. I love the diversity, the life," says Mrs. Gianaca. This mom of Freeport has freely involved herself in the "life of her town and its' children," according to her son Steven. When her two boys were 'playing Little League ball, she served on the Little League Board. When the league's president rah and was elected mayor, Mrs. Gianaca was elected the first woman president of the league and served for four years. The league had 55 teams at the time.

said"Mr. Kuncham. A breakdown of the components of the budget show 76:95% devoted to programs, 11.92% slated for administrative costs and 11.13% for capital improvements. New staffing proposed includes three teachers and one library teaching assistant at the high school; four new teachers for the full-day kindergarten program and a- library teaching assistant at Columbus; and a part time security guard at the Atkinson School. Some of changes include increases in funding for extended day, Saturday and Regents review programs; a new science program; BOCES services.and special education services. Mr. Kuncham told residents that in the event of a contingency budget, programs-and services would need to be reduced by $2,710,121. The reductions could.affect equipment and supplies, summer school programs, transportation, athletics and a number of other support services. A visitor cautioned administrators that although state aid increased this year, there are no guarantees for next year. In his response Mr. Kuncham said

that all were, mindful, of the prospect and that there has been some dialogue .about reform for educational funding.

Other business Board President Michael Raab suggested a barbeque in recognition of staff for the end of the year. A discussion ensued concerning the logistics of organizing the celebration. It was deciding to do some exploratory investigation before proceeding further. Special Education PTA (SEPTA) president Diane' Clark donated a DVD, "Normal People Scare .Me," to the school. Ms. Clark said that she would like this DVD about autism to be used for staff •development on the s.ubject. Ms. Clark also requested that the search for a new 'director for pupil personnel be intensified. The SEPTA president suggested that a translator be provided for Individualized Eeducation Plans (lEPs). Another visitor to the meeting, agreeing with Ms. Clark, suggested that teachers need to be educated about •autism and other special education (continued on page 19)

Viewpoint: Support Baldwin school, library budgets By Joan Delahey We urge residents in the Baldwin School District and Baldwin Library District to vote positively for both budgets. While we recognize the increasing property tax burden, we also recognize that many of the increases for both budgets involve expenditures over which both the school district and library have little control. Retirement contributions, contractual obligations, benefits, utility costs and additional unfunded mandates to comply with increased testing and academic accountability continue to impact the school budget. The desire of residents to have a first-class library facility with enhanced programs and services also comes with a cost. The problem of property taxes is not one which any individual community can

solve alone. Legislators must figure out a way to create a fairer system, whether it be allowing primarily residential communities like Baldwin to have some share in the benefits of regional commercial taxes (Roosevelt Field, for example) or whether regional cost of living expenses will play some part in state aid considerations. We also urge residents to read the budget brochure carefully. It has been mailed to each home, but for those who have put it aside and possibly thrown it out, the entire brochure can also be accessed on the district's website (www.baldwin.kl2.ny.us). We particularly suggest that residents consider the impact of a negative vote. There are some who think that a defeated budget will impact salary increases. They will not. Salaries are contractual. The real impact of a defeated budget is most prob-

ably' in the very areas which residents would not want cut - programs, services, use of facilities by outside groups, purchase of new equipment, including technology, and preventative maintenance. We understand that residents are angry. The more effective'outlet for that anger, however, is not in voting down a school or library budget but rather in contacting local legislators. And in contacting those legislators, the thrust should not only focus on securing additional state aid annually. Most legislators are already very much committed to that effort. Rather, the focus should be on the more massive changes which are'necessary statewide to really make a difference. At a recent budget hearing, one resident asked the logical question, "Where does it all end?" Clearly, school districts cannot keep on adding increases of over

five percent every year. Legislators must find more appropriate ways to fund education more equitably. o. Educators must start to look at the educational model and see if there are more efficient ways to deliver educational services. Senior year students who are 18 v: years old might not need to be educated for all of their subjects within the same self-contained classroom as do five-yearolds. Parents must increasingly step up to play their role as educational advocates in the home, insisting that sufficient educational effort be required of their children. And students must understand that they, g and they alone, must commit to learning. We urge everyone to do their part and I we urge residents to vote "Yes" for both the school and library budgets as a most important first step in that joint commitment.

?

Baldwinites have choices: Candidates offer continuity or change plishments during their tenures, describing kudos received by Baldwin schools or the enhancements to the facility and services at the library. Mr. Gittleman was the sole candidate with a specific agenda suggestion. At numerous board of education meetings and public gatherings, he has espoused the initiation of a formal Social Emotional Learning (SEL) program to help students learn how to manage their emotions and actions. He says that in this field, the school district is reactive rather than pro-active and cites statistics showing 255 "violent" or disruptive incidents between 2003/4 and 408 incidents from September 2005 until March, 2006. • Incumbents Mary Jo O'Hagan and B.A. Schoen, however, outlined numerous programs, services, initiatives, and new training which are ongoing and Ms. O'Hagan noted that the entire community would soon be receiving a letter concerning school district responses to numerous bomb threats at both the middle school and high school. Numerous library employees were

By Joan Delaney Specifics were few at the Baldwin Council of PTAs Candidates Forum held on May 2, but one choice was offered by challengers for seats on both the school and library boards. Do residents prefer continuity or do they want change? Stanley Gittleman, running for a seat on the school board against incumbents Mary Jo O'Hagan and B.A. Schoen, suggested that residents could have both. "Vote for me for change and one of them for continuity." There are two atlarge seats with three year terms open on the school board. Challenger Ethell Smith, running against two-term irtcumbent Anthony Tarantino, echoed the same'thought. "It's time for a change." There is one seat with a five-year term open on the library board. Aside from that choice, the approximately 40 residents in attendance at the forum received few specifics on what any of the candidates would do, or do differently. Incumbents on both school and library bpards frequently outlined ' the school district's and library's accom-

present and various questions were posed to the library candidates about working conditions, services, and the lack of a timely contract. Since she is not privy to library board actions, Ms. Smith confined her answers to more general approaches which she said would focus on "researching and evaluating." She described her hope for a library which would be viewed as "one of the finest." Mr. Tarantino was more specific and referring to recent negotiations, he stated that representations of the board of trustees had met face to face with staff arid union representatives, made a new offer three weeks ago and have heard nothing in return. Much of the focus was on high school property taxes, with incumbents noting the importance of lobbying and this year's significant increase in funding. Mr. Gittleman suggested accessing "alternate fair taxes" and mobilizing the community. The 13 questions posed during the forum included concerns regarding special education services, overcrowding, and technology upgrades in the

school district. Library-related questions were specific and included ques.tions regarding the location of handicapped parking, which is controlled by the town, unruly youngsters, budget cuts for book purchases, and adult programming. Audience members were told, "You may only ask questions, not make statements," but Mr. Schoen noted several times that various questions, with which he disagreed and which he described as negative in tone, contained implied statements. Overall, the forum was exceedingly general in tone with the exception of Mr. Gittleman's commitment to Social Emotional Learning programs. Audience members left with little idea of how the election of any of the candidates would result in any specific change in the direction or in the overall tone of their respective boards. What residents could be assured of, however, is that all of the candidates were both pleasant and collegia! and seemed committed to the time and effort that would be required for their respective volunteer positions.

Patrice Gianaca is The Leader's Mother of the Year from page 1 •

She instituted the zero-toleranee policy for behavior on the field of play in the league. As a former officer of Chase Manhattan Bank, her managerial skills helped her run the league like it was a business. "The Little League was not just about winning - it was about the kids," she says. "They should play not only to win but to have fun." As president, Mrs. Gianaca got involved in kids' lives - she got to know them and they knew her. : She became invblved with the travel teams, worked with the school district to change the image of the baseball league. The; parks and fields were upgraded. "They are showplaces now premier fields that teams vie to play in." 'Her husband, who was a Little League coach, was not always in agreement with the president. "I did have to pick my battles," she says. Son Chris. played varsity baseball at Freeport High School and still plays Softball with a semi-pro Long Island League. His dad does a turn or two on the mound with the team. "I fielded lots of complaints from parents and other moms," s'he remembers. "I would always tell people: if you don't like something, get involved!" She was a den mother for Boy Scouts and Steven, a senior in Freeport •High School, is still a Scout currently working, on his Eagle Scout project. With help from other Scouts and.superintendent of public works Lou Di Grazia, he is placing educational signs around the waterfront parks.

A few years ago, Mrs. Gianaca went back to school to learn computer skills and get her degree'. She accomplished .that finishing on the Dean's List. She is now coordinator of computer services at Village Hall. What motivated her son to write the glowing letter nominating his. mom? "Every year we would read about the moms of Freeport in the Leader and my brother and I agreed our mom deserved this honor. If I am there, my mom is too! She would drive the van and take all my friends to wherever." Steven graduates from Freeport High School this June and has a merit scholarship to Hofstra University. He is the drum major in the school band and plays the trumpet. He was selected to participate in the All-State musical, .where musicians from all different state schools played .at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester. He has been a member of Channel 12's LI Challenge team. He will be the salutatorian at his graduation. He says he is up for college.

"I am so proud of my boys,", says the Freeport Mom of the Year. Her advice to moms and moms-to-be: "Stay involved with your kids. Even as they

get older,, they need the support from their parents." Happy Mother's Day to all proud Freeport morns!

Raab Responds to flyer

To The Leader: ; This past weekend, two versions of r-l disgusting and slanderous political flyers were distributed throughout our community attacking the personal andprofessional integrity of Dr. Joseph Cattano, one of two candidates for Freeport school board. One of these pieces of written trash £ 3 featured a statement indicating that I, Michael Raab, paid for and endorsed the flyer. I.was identified as "SBP Michael Raab.". I believe "SBP" to § < mean school board president. .Let me make it very clear! I never •wrote, co-authored, approved, edited, nor was aware of the production of this flyer. The very fact that someone would be stupid, enough to put my name on it is insane. I would never write nor support such actions. Who would do such a thing? Are they nuts? What were they thinking? Did they think I was going to ignore this criminal act? No Way! . • I am therefore offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the identification of the individual(s) involved. If a minor was asked to distribute the flyers at the request of an adult, I will not press charges against the.minor if theycome forward with the truth. I understand that Dr.' Cattano has filed ch'arges at' the Freeport Police Department, and I plan to file a complaint as well. Parents, please speak with your kids! Perhaps they saw someone. Dr. Cattano is a fine, upstanding member . of our community. He is a professional, and has served our community both in private therapy practice and as a courageous school board member. I offer Dr. Cattano my commitment to bring this coward to justice. Why would anyone want to run for public office in Freeport, only to be attacked on such a personal level? Is this what politics has come to? What lesson is there in this for our children, if the author, gets away with this? If you only knew of 'the hundreds of hours, nights, and weekends t h a t ' a school board member puts lt\ for free that's right - free! In fact, it"costs me money to be a member of the board. My hat goes off to Ms. Mule and Dr. Cattano for running this year. Let me make a few things very clear. • Board members are held to a higher standard and magnifying glass! The board • members of the Freeport Schools are subject to four layers of audits of their expenses attributed to "Reimbursable Expenses." We are required to provide receipts, and. explanations for all expenses. In fact, there.' is a very specific board policy regarding travel expenses. All board members' expenses ' were audited by the internal claims auditor, internal auditor, external auditor, and are subject to state audit as well. We get up at 5:30 in the morning for 7:00 presentations, lectures, trade shows, and •workshops. We brought back more information, programs, software, and ideas than you could possibly know. AH board members have to travel to 'conferences depending on their schedule. Like all board members, Dr. .Cattano participated actively in representing Freeport Schools and applied his professional knowledge to the challenges of education.

t

• No one can say that any past or present board member is a rubberstamper of the superintendent. Dr. Eversley 'is the CEO and he reports to the board as a whole, not to any individual board member. We are elected state officials arid take our roles very • seriously. During Dr. Cattano's three years on the board, he made it very clear that he- was an independent thinker and many times took strong and unpopular stands to protect students' rights, education and safety. • In the other flyer, it was said that Dr. Cattano raised taxes, four times. • That's a lie. .He couldn't have. He was only on the board three years! In fact, did you know that no school board member in the past 10 years ever voted against adoption of the budget? Taxes are raised because expenses go up as state aid goes down or stays the same. This is a very pivotal time for Freeport Schools. Over the past few y«ars you have seen significant improvement in many areas, although

there are many serious challenges and decisions ahead..' Your choice for school board trustee must be free of any influence that these filthy letters may have created. Please make yourselves familiar with the candidates and schedule yourselves to vote! Fortunately this year, thanks to State Senator Chuck Fuchillo and our other friends in Albany, we received addition state aid. Our tax levy increase is only 2.2%. For the average Freeport home, 'the tax increase due to the school budget is estimated at $116 per year, or $9.67 per month. In spite of bearing one of the lowest tax levy increases in many years, the budgetadopted by the board maintains all critical programs focused on academic achievement. These include: • additional instructional support for Freeport High School • the implementation of a full-day' kindergarten program to bring Freeport in line with other districts • an additional allocation for instructional technology

• implementation of the new science program • increased support for extended day, Saturday Academy and Regents Review programs that have helped to significantly improve the performance of Freeport students on state tests and increase the graduation rate. • capital improvement projects The budget and trustee' vote is Tuesday, May 16, from "6 a.m. to 9 p.m. For information on registering to vote, call the District Clerk's Office,' 867-5209. . Please . visit www.freeportschools.org. This letter is my personal response to the misuse and illegal identification theft by using my name in an:unautho-' rized manner. This letter is in no way to be construed as a message from the school board or the district. My position as president of the school board.should also be disclosed. Michael J. Raab

sional in our community and does not deserve this type of smear to his reputation. We stand united in denouncing this tasteless and libelous personal attack. Naturally, it was posted anonymously. Obviously, these flyers' do "not in any manner reflect the views of either candidate and we find it distressing and disheartening that they were posted. We both believe that Freeport is a wonderful place to live and work. We are both running for the school board with the foremost desire of providing a school system that can provide the type of academic'experience we all so cherish for all our children. Dr. Joe Cattano Debra Mule

Kudos to Albany To The Leader: 'The Board of Education and-administration of the Freeport Public Schools have worked very hard to present to our community an educationally sound and a fiscally sensible budget for 2006/2007. The tax levy increase of

School board smear campaign from page 3 my professional credentials." The Leader last week incorrectly referred-to Dr. Cattano as a psychiatrist. Dr. Cattano's biography states that he has a doctorate in clinical social work from New York University and post graduate training from the New York School for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis where he received a certifi-

cate in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. "I believe this is disgraceful to the village and the whole political process. Why would any candidate come forward when this kind of thing goes on?" said Dr. Cattano. "When people see this flyer they back'away in revulsion. There .'are some people who want to win at all costs. Why don't they just say I'm an ax murderer?" ,

2.2% is the lowest increase in the last six years for Freeport, and the third" lowest increase in the. county this year. The proposed budget maintains existing programs and also includes new programs - full-day kindergarten, extendedday and Saturday Academies, new science program and additional resources to strengthen the high school's Regents Review program and increase the graduation rates. The .district has been benefited by two actions of the Legislature this year. First - the adoption of an on-time budget enabled the district to make important budget decisions on a timely basis. Second, recognizing the inequities in the school funding formulas, the

Legislature allocated additional resources the Freeport Public School District for the 2006-2007 school year. We acknowledge and appreciate the efforts of our local legislators, Senator Charles Fuschillo, Assemblywoman Earlene Hooper, and Assemblyman David McDonough in this process. The Board of Education applied virtually all of the additional funds to reduce the tax levy, thus reducing the property tax burden on our residents Please remember to vote on May 16, 2006. If you have any questions .about the budget or about voter registration or polling places, please call .867-5200. Dr. Eric L. Eversley Superintendent of Schools

Dr. Joseph Cattano for School Board Trustee Y An Open Letter gj^ • As some of you who know me may be aware, I am solely responsible for my campaign for Trustee. I, with assistance from family members, funded this campaign and did the majority of "legwork in trying to procure the necessary votes to be elected. I did not seek the support of the PTA, Little League, PBA, PAL, teacher's union, or any of the other many groups and institutions that exert influence in our elections. Why? There are very difficult decisions to be made in the upcoming years regarding our school system in Freeport. A trustee needs to be totally free of political indebtedness, independent of political influence by backers and supporters, and autonomous in thought and action. As a trustee, I cannot afford to have my judgment compromised! I must make decisions and take actions that work on the behalf of my real constituency our children and those residents who pay for our students' education through their taxes. The Issues. In my opinion, three stand forefront - school taxes, the safety of our students, and academic achievement. Taxes. Six years ago I was elected to the school board. Yes, I supported the budgets during my tenure: At that time, there was no other alternative. We had the hefty expenses associated with New Visions elementary school coming oh line, as well as a significantly renovated and expanded High School. Desperately needed repairs to other facilities could no longer be deferred. And, we had the substantial costs associated with a new Superintendent and an expanded administrative staff. The choice was clear. Our residents and businesses responded generously by approving the budgets presented. Now, many of these very same residents and business are caught in the crossfire of escalating school and local taxes, as well as expensive property reassessments. It is time to respond to their- need for a break from increasing tax bills. We need to appreciate their financial circumstances, as they appreciated ours. The Board should assume the responsibility of "capping" the annual budget and limiting discretionary spending. Equally important, the Board must restrain expand. ing long-term contractual obligations. Safety. Our secondary schools, particularly the High School, have been the scene of many violent incidents and continuing turmoil amongst students. If our children are to experience the joy of learning, we must provide them with a safe, secure environment. They do not need to be anxious or filled with fear of harm. We must change the culture and environment of the High School to one that promotes self-control and supports the primary goal of becoming an educated individual. We need to create an environment and culture that is distinct from "the street," a culture that nurtures, supports, and even demands that students act in a way consistent with being a student. It is about learning, the acquisition of knowledge, and the joy of being educated. It is not about acting-out and succumbing to the excesses of adolescent life. Together, we can do it! We can create a culture and environment that works for all our students. Academic Achievement. The academic scorecard in today's Newsday (5/6) was not what we all hoped to see. I understand that many are disheartened by the very slow improvement in the performance of our students. However, I am actually optimistic. If we have the right people on the Board, working in concert with administration, faculty; and the community - we can change and improve. As stated above, change the culture and the rest will start to change as well. But, that will not be an easy task. It will require innovative policies and programs, the capacity to "think outside the box," and the courage to change. I am confident that as a community, we can bring forth a school system that we all will be proud of and one that will work for all our students. >• WE NEED TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY. WE CONTINUE TO RELY ON OLD, UNPRODUCTIVE POLICIES. THE SAME POLICIES AND PROCEDURES RESULT IN THE SAME UNSATISFACTORY RESULTS. >• WE NEED. TO BE INNOVATIVE AND THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.

.

>• WE MUST NOT TOLERATE VIOLENCE AND DISRESPECT TOWARDS FELLOW STUDENTS AND FACULTY. >- WE NEED TO HAVE THE COURAGE TO TAKE CHARGE OF OUR SCHOOLS. FOR EXAMPLE, WE NEED TO HAVE OUR CHILDREN IN SCHOOL - ON TIME. WE NEED A POWERFUL AND ENFORCED TRUANCY/ABSENTEEISM POLICY. YOU CANNOT LEARN IF YOU ARE NOT IN SCHOOL.
