Pasack Valley School Board Debates Involvement in Local Cannabis Committee

The Pasack Valley School Board held a recent meeting where discussions about the board’s role in a local exploratory cannabis committee surfaced as a point of significant interest.

Stephanie Huang, a Woodcliff Lake resident, broached the topic, inquiring about the board’s awareness and stance on the exploratory cannabis committee formed by the Woodcliff council on May 9, 2023.

“We are aware,” a board member affirmed, indicating that they were knowledgeable about the newly established committee. The member elaborated on the board’s potential role in observing the committee’s activities and possibly voicing their position on the issue. They proposed the idea of assigning a representative to attend the committee’s public meetings and potentially join the groups involved.

“The board has not discussed this as a board yet,” another member added, clarifying that their participation would primarily be observational, possibly extending to the passage of a non-binding resolution that expresses their position on the issue.

Aside from this discussion, the board members spent a substantial part of the meeting recognizing student achievements. The Pascack Hills High School baseball team was lauded for winning the Group Two State Championship and being named the Bergen County small school team of the year. The team and their coaches received praise from the board in their absence.

Further in the celebration of student accomplishments, sophomore Jake Polsky and junior Arie Hirschfield, both from Pascack Hills High School, were acknowledged for their selection to the first team of Bergen County Tennis doubles. The board members shared a light moment with Hirschfield, who was present at the meeting, as they playfully compared his coach’s golfing abilities to his tennis skills.

Other typical items on the agenda, including policy updates, human resources matters, and finance-related decisions, were processed without controversy.
