Decision No. 17,251

Appeal of LOUISA PAGLIA, et al.,* from action of the Board of Education of the Massapequa Union Free School District regarding school reorganization.

Decision No. 17,251

(November 8, 2017)

Guercio & Guercio LLP, attorneys for respondent, Eric Levine, Esq., of counsel

ELIA, Commissioner.--Petitioners appeal a July 13, 2017 decision of the Board of Education of the Massapequa Union Free School District (“respondent” or “board”) reversing a February 9, 2016 decision to reorganize the grades in its elementary school and middle school and instituting the previous grade reconfiguration.  The appeal must be dismissed.

The Commissioner will only decide matters in actual controversy and will not render a decision on a state of facts which no longer exist or which subsequent events have laid to rest (Appeal of a Student with a Disability, 48 Ed Dept Rep 532, Decision No. 15,940; Appeal of M.M., 48 id. 527, Decision No. 15,937; Appeal of Embro, 48 id. 204, Decision No. 15,836). 

This appeal is related to Appeal of Kaufmann, et al., 57 Ed Dept Rep, Decision No. 17,250.[1]  As in Kaufmann, this appeal seeks review of respondent’s July 13, 2017 resolution on similar grounds.  Because petitioners’ appeal in Appeal of Kaufmann, et al., 57 Ed Dept Rep, Decision No. 17,250, was sustained in part and the July 13, 2017 resolution was annulled, no further relief may be granted herein, rendering the instant appeal moot.

In light of the above disposition, I need not address the parties’ remaining contentions.

THE APPEAL IS DISMISSED.
