The Board of Education accepted a $16,500 gift from the Farmingville Elementary PTA at its meeting Monday night. The money will go toward building a low-height, horizontal climbing wall that will be used during gym classes, but not during recess. Board member Sharon D\u2019Orso worried about the precedent that could be set if the board accepted the gift. \u201cI think the program itself is great, but the issue of equity between schools, giving it to one school and not having a decided way of giving it to the others is a problem.\u201d Superintendent Karen Baldwin said that the gift fell within the board\u2019s policy for accepting gifts because it was \u201cinnovative.\u201d \u201cIt is for social, emotional, and physical health, and promotes collaborative work among the students,\u201d she said. \u201cI recommend that we accept this gift.\u201d The board did accept the gift, with D\u2019Orso being the only member who voted against it.
