About the Board of Education

The Plainedge Board of Education consists of seven residents who are elected by the people and serve without salary for three-year terms of office.

Business Meetings are generally held on the second Thursday of each month at 8 p.m. (from September to June, located in the Innovation Learning Center (ILC) in the west wing of Plainedge High School), and Public Work Sessions are generally held on the Tuesday preceding the Business Meeting. As you will see in the pages that follow, there are some months where Public Work Sessions and Business Meetings fall on the same day, whereas in others, they are separated out as noted above.

During both our Public Work Sessions and Business Meetings, we look to highlight student/staff achievements, as well as provide in-depth presentations on the district’s educational programs and services. These meetings strive to provide a clear picture of what is going on in the district. Our meetings also give community residents an opportunity to comment or ask questions related to our schools and programs. There is always an opportunity for public participation during our meetings, and residents are encouraged to attend.

The agenda and minutes of Public Work Sessions and Business Meetings are posted on the district’s website.

Please call the District Clerk’s Office (516) 992-7457 should you need more information about school board meetings.

Earlier this month Plainedge High School Seniors, Ashley Snyder and Safa Ghafoor competed over two rounds against 1000 students from across New York State. Safa earned 4th place in the New York State Science and Engineering Fair
 
Ashley Snyder wanted to explore the factors which might predict a patient being mistriaged in the emergency room. She found a dataset of anonymized patient data from an emergency room. She learned how to use machine learning – the same type used in large language AI models – to identify the patient complaints and diagnoses that were associated with mistriage. Ashley was able to demonstrate sex differences in complaints and diagnoses.
 
Safa Ghafoor wanted to examine whether reported disparities in organ transplants actually existed. Safa used a government database – OPTN – and built datasets organized by organ, sex, and race. She calculated a new measurement that normalized the resulting transplants to US Census data. Safa found that these new statistics showed that certain racial demographics received more or less organs relative to their proportion in the US population.

We are so proud of these two students for this outstanding accomplishment!
