Valentine Working on Something Special

31814_100205353360600_5466850_nGrant Valentine, a veteran parole officer, former candidate for state senate, and all-around pillar of the community, told the Rockland County Times he and several other concerned Rocklanders are working on creating the county’s first charter school.

The school would be built in the Town of Ramapo and seek to provide another option for beleaguered students of the East Ramapo School District and any others who might be interested and qualify. Stay tuned to see how Valentine and company’s plans unfold and if the school opens in time for the 2013/14 school year.
