HEMPSTEAD - A rally was held in Nassau today to call for reform within the Hempstead School District.

It came after the state's education commissioner nullified the results of the last school board election, mandating that voters head back to the ballots in coming weeks. As News 12 has reported, the commissioner removed Councilwoman Betty Cross from her position as president of the board following allegations of absentee ballot fraud.

Teachers, parents and community advocates gathered to demand a so-called "people's platform," a list of recommendations and reforms they say will turn the troubled district around.

The district has 60 days to hold a new election. It will likely take place in mid-October.
