Board of Education leadership is an essential ingredient for any successful school district. Barbara Berkowitz has supplied that informed leadership for the Great Neck Public Schools for the last 29 years, years during which Great Neck has continued to set the standard against which other schools in the county, state and nation measure themselves.
Her leadership as Board president has seen the district respond to unique challenges and she has consistently done so responsibly, frugally, and collaboratively, while always maintaining a connection with the community she loves and is proud to represent.
I was privileged to witness this leadership personally during my time with the district and have come to learn that such progressive thinking and actions are not the norm in most communities.
