Dr. Kathleen Cashin, the superintendent of the recently created Division Five that includes Rockaway public schools, visited Far Rockaway High School (FRHS) recently at the invitation of the NAACP. Cashin, who spoke and answered questions for more than two hours, was previously a teacher and principal in the New York City school system.

"We're going to shake things up," she said, adding "but not in an adversarial way."

Division Five offices will be located at 82-01 Rockaway Blvd., Queens, and at the old District 27 office, 1655 St. Marks Ave., Brooklyn.
