Updates and Information  

The annual board member visits to Washing D.C. and Albany to meet with our state and federal leadership were productive and informative. Thank you to all who attended to advocate for the students of our region. In  a two-week period, Four County SBA members met with Senator  Chuck Schumer,  Senator Rich Funke, Senator Pam Helming, Senator Thomas O’Mara, Assemblyman Brian Manktelow, and Assemblyman Phil Palmesano.

Lobbying Efforts Take Members to Capitol Hill and Albany

Position papers were distributed and topics   of discussion included the foundation aid formula, equity in educational funding, Special Education reserves, Career and Technical Education and its future, BOCES aid, teacher shortages, bus driver licensing issues, and mental health.  The group did a great job representing the issues of our region.

The Four County School Boards Association would like to extend a warm thank you to

Jeff Ginsberg

 EduTech Area Network Manager

 for his humorous and enlightening 

presentation at our January General Membership dinner meeting at Club 86 in Geneva, New York. Jeff focused on how to be proactive and aware of your online activity both as an individual and a board member.  Various examples were given to demonstrate how your digital presence can be  compromised as well as what impact it can have as a board member.  Tips and strategies were given on how to increase security to not only protect your data but also that of your district as well.
