YOU'RE OFFICIALLY INVITED
AS YOU PREPARE FOR WINTER BUDGET CONVERSATIONS, meet with colleagues from other districts to discuss School Safety Priorities and Funding, Board's Role in the Tenure Process, Social Media Communication Strategies, and more. Attendees will get to hand-pick their table topics in advance from the 9 options offered. There is nothing tricky to registration, just tell your District Clerk you want to attend (cost is $20 per person for dinner).
FOR YOUR REFERENCE - SED BUDGET TIMELINES AND NOTIFICATIONS
WPSBA WANTS TO ENSURE YOU HAVE ALL THE INFO YOU NEED, so we have uploaded the budget timeline for 2019 and put it at your fingertips. Although budget vote results are still far away (we first have to make it through winter), download the board election and budget vote timeline and the NYSED budget info submission dates from the announcements section on our website homepage. It will be there for you throughout the budget season.
NEW NY STATE LEADERSHIP AND CLAIMS OF WHAT THAT MEANS FOR OUR REGION
IT'S EASY TO SMILE ABOUT THE STATE LEADERSHIP CHANGES when both the Senate Majority and Education Committee leaders are from our region. We're expecting talk of mental health/social emotional learning, teacher evaluations, school funding/tax cap, and safety, among other issues. We are laying the groundwork for a strong year of public education advocacy.
