LEARN HOW TO FIGHT FOR THEM AT DEC. 11 ADVOCACY WORKSHOP! As Albany is primed to continue its under-informed and misguided approach to public eduction in 2015, we will again have to stand up for our children’s needs.

A CALL FOR UNITY AND A CALL FOR ACTION - The Statewide School Finance Consortium is asking its member school districts to adopt resolutions to end Gap Elimination Adjustments in the 2015-16 state budget and appoint a Berger-style Commission for reforming school funding.

PREPARING OUR STUDENTS FOR 21st CENTURY CAREERS: Our first Board Presidents Roundtable of the school year (held September 4 at Pascale’s Italian Bistro at Drumlins) spotlighted a topic of critical importance to school board members — preparing our students for 21st century careers. The panel featured several of CNYSBA’s Business Partners, who shared data, resources and the largely untold story of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) opportunities for our children — including scholarships, internships and employment with some of CNY’s top companies.  ”These opportunities will only continue to grow over the next few years,” said CNYSBA Executive Director Charles Borgognoni. “We want to build awareness of STEM opportunities and we want BOE members to build awareness with administrators, guidance counselors, teachers, students, stakeholders and communities.”
