The Hewlett-Woodmere Board of Education held their annual re-organization meeting this week, swearing in veterans to new terms in addition to welcoming new members into the district.
Dr. Joyce M. Bisso was sworn in to her third consecutive year as the Hewlett-Woodmere School District’s Superintendent, let through the official Oath of Office by District Clerk Barbara Randazzo.
In addition, Stephanie Gould was unanimously elected to her fourth year serving as President by her fellow Board members, and was also led through the Oath of Office by Randazzo.
Trustee Harold Kislik was unanimously elected and sworn in as the Board’s new Vice President, replacing the outgoing Stephen B. Witt, who will remain on the Board as a Trustee.
Two new Trustees were officially added to the Board this evening as well, as Jonathan Altus and Melissa Gates were both sworn in District Clerk Randazzo, ready to begin their duties to the children of the Hewlett-Woodmere school district.
Hewlett-Woodmere PTA Co-Presidents Mitchell Greebel and Linda Kreisman were on-hand at the meeting, and wished both the old and new members of the Board of Education success in the year ahead.
“The PTA council is very excited about the new Board members,” said Greebel. “We’re looking forward to working with them to continue moving the District in the right direction. Good luck.”
The appointment of Board service personnel also took place this evening, as the following positions were approved by the Board:
- District Clerk

After the re-organization meeting concluded, the Board held their normal monthly business meeting, which was abbreviated due to the School District currently being in summer recess.
