On Thursday evening, state legislators will join community members from 47 different school districts in seven counties for a panel discussing about the fiscal challenges that schools face.
The discussion is called “NY Schools STILL in Fiscal Peril: Our Kids Can’t Wait Another Year”. It follows a similar discussion which took place last year.
Community members will learn how they can be a citizens advocate to help fight for enough state aid to support the schools.
The panel is scheduled for January 30 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. It will be held in the Colonie Central High School Auditorium.
