SPRING VALLEY - There's a new member on the East Ramapo School Board.

Sabrina Charles-Pierre is an East Ramapo graduate and working mother of two. She is replacing former board member Juan Pablo Ramirez, who resigned in July.

Parents in the district have criticized the primarily Hasidic Orthodox Jewish-run board, saying that Charles-Pierre will not be able to help the financially troubled district.

Charles-Pierre says she is aware of the struggles, but is hopeful for positive changes.

The school board president wrote in a statement that Charles-Pierre has joined the board at an exciting time, and that "our community has a wonderful opportunity to turn around the school district."

Charles-Pierre will serve on the board until the next school board election in the spring, when she can then run for a full term.
