S. Huntington Pushes Forward With Plan to Transform District

South Huntington school officials plan more presentations this month on their ambitious plans to put the district in the forefront of education on Long Island.

The plans rely on the passage of two proposed bonds, one for $85,969,597 and the other for $28,830,902. That vote is scheduled for Oct. 7.

Known as Vision 2020: the Future Starts Now, the plan covers nearly every aspect of public education in the district, including enhanced academics with more technology and science labs, 13 turf fields, strengthened security such as automatic classroom door locks and cameras on buses, improvements in art, music and theater programs, support for special-education families and infrastructure work on all buildings.

District officials have presented information to several groups throughout the community over the last few months. In addition, they plan two more presentations, Sept.12 and Sept. 25 at Walt Whitman High School.

The vastness of the project has provoked both support and opposition, along with curiosity. One person connected with another nearby school district wondered whether South Huntington was “getting too big for its britches.” 

But South Huntington leaders say the time is now to push into the future, with the slogan, “Imagine a School District Ahead of Its Time…Far Ahead.” They describe their goals as transformational across the generations.

The district outlines its plans on the district website, a separate website,  and on Facebook.

  1. Why doesn’t the Board wait until we pay off our bond for 36 million dollars due on June 2030 first before we put another tax burden on the taxpayers of South Huntington School District. We voted the Board in to be financially responsible for our hard earned tax dollars, we can vote them out also. Young and old people are moving off the Island because of housing prices and taxes. Let’s put a stop to this sneaky bond issue vote and vote NO October 7, 2019.
