North Rockland School District Superintendent Ileana Eckert told the Rockland County Times that taxpayers had approved spending $7.8 million for repairs to roofs, masonry and other infrastructure improvements for campuses around the district. The funding came from Excel Aid (Expanding Our Children’s Education and Learning), which is a New York State program designed to assist school districts with improving their facilities.

The district will be highlighting exceptional alumni in the calendar this year, who have had significant impacts on the lives of others in their communities, nation or the world. ‘Infinite Campus’ is a database for managing student information and maintaining student records and is designed to manage attendance, grades, schedules and test scores.

The staff will be trained to use the system and it will go ‘live’ in November after the first marking period. Also, STEM coordinator Mike Brondolo worked with teachers and students to measure the reverberation rate in the music room to replace the panels and students produced braille signage for the classroom doors using 3-D printers.
