Blue Ribbon designation

The Glen Cove School District is proud to announce that Landing Elementary School has been selected by the New York State Education Department (NYSED) as a nominee to the United States Department of Education for the 2010 Blue Ribbon Award. Schools designated as Blue Ribbon Schools serve as role models for schools throughout the nation.
This prestigious nomination is reserved for public and private elementary, middle and high schools that are academically superior or have demonstrated dramatic gains in student achievement to high levels. “This nomination is a testament to the commitment that the Board of Education, administration and staff have made to improving student achievement and to the hard work of our students,” stated Landing Elementary School Principal Dr. Michael Israel. “We are very proud to be nominated.” The Landing School must now submit a detailed application, including New York State English Language Arts and Math assessment data. The winners of the 2010 Blue Ribbon Award will be announced by the United States Secretary of Education in September 2010.
