State blocks sale of East Ramapo’s Hillcrest School

The state education commissioner has ordered the East Ramapo school district to halt the sale of Hillcrest Elementary School, an Education Department  spokesman confirmed Tuesday. Commissioner David Steiner issued a stay in the school sale, pending his decision on an appeal filed with the Education Department by Steven White, a district parent, on Aug. 7.

White thinks the East Ramapo Board of Education improperly sold the school to Yeshiva Avir Yakov, a New Square congregation, in July for about $3.2 million, far below the $10.2 million value assigned to the 12-acre property by the Clarkstown Assessor’s Office.
