To the Editor:
With the Capital Region still buzzing from last week’s unprecedented regional rally to avert the fiscal crisis facing public schools, educational stakeholders representing 47 school districts will reconvene Monday night to learn what they can personally do to advocate for change.
The Niskayuna Central School District will be the host this time for “A Call to Action,” Part Two of the landmark program, “Your Public Schools in Fiscal Peril – Running Out of Time & Options,” which was held Jan. 31.
Following this memorable kick-off event, hundreds pledged to do more than just listen about how years of state-aid cuts are crippling our schools. That’s what “A Call to Action” is all about.
Please join us for a 90-minute follow-up workshop at 7 p.m. on Feb. 11, in the auditorium of Niskayuna High School on Balltown Road. The workshop will offer effective “how-to” strategies and techniques for helping parents, teachers, and taxpayers like you reach out to lawmakers.
Featured speakers will be Robert Lowry and Kyle Belokopitsky from the New York State Council of School Superintendents. Their presentations will be followed by an audience question-and-answer session, then refreshments and conversation in the school cafeteria.
Call 456-6200, ext. 3102 to confirm your attendance on Feb. 11. For planning purposes, we need to know if you will be attending. To learn more about the event, please visit www.guilderlandschools.org.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on Monday!
