On Oct. 9, members of the Nassau County Council of School Superintendents and the Suffolk County School Superintendents Association gathered together to meet with New York State Commissioner of Education MaryEllen Elia and Board of Regents Regent Roger Tilles. Western Suffolk BOCES hosted the event.

The meeting provided an opportunity for Commissioner Elia to present her agenda and long-range goals and for the superintendents to voice their opinions regarding academic standards, assessments and teacher evaluations, as well as share the many successes achieved by Long Island schools. There was also an opportunity for Commissioner Elia to answer questions and meet the superintendents.
