From The Mineola Patch: The Mineola (N.Y.) School District has failed to win approval of a $4.4 million bond proposal. Because of the defeat, the district will move the eighth grade into the high school and the fifth grade into the middle school. The bond money would have paid for an addition of Jackson Avenue School to house grades three, four and five.
