Lexington Agrees with Mill Neck Legal Claims in Suit against NY State Education
Lexington School & Center for the Deaf has agreed in their court filing with the claims made by the Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf in their law suit that NY State Education Department errored in allowing the 4201 Association, a nongovernmental agency, to determine how funding was split; failed to use the three year enrollment average; and employed a methodology that is inconsistent with the Legislature’s directive.
The law suit is seeking the current allocation be annulled and have it replaced with a formula that is consistent with the Legislative mandates, which includes up-to-date enrollment data.
“It is gratifying to have yet another leading educational institution agree with our legal challenge,” said Michael F. Killian, President & CEO of the Mill Neck Family of Organizations, which includes the Mill Neck Manor School for the Deaf. “I am looking forward to a satisfactory resolution that is fair and equitable to everyone, and not just a few.”
