Schalmont CSD needs your help: Advocate today!

March 29, 2016

 As the Senate and Assembly draw closer to a New York State budget, your advocacy for our school is needed! Please consider calling or emailing your local legislators to remind them to fully fund public schools and eliminate the Gap Elimination Adjustment. A message has been created for you to read or cut and paste into an email. Contact information for our legislators is at the bottom of this email.

Deadline for adopting a state budget is April 1. Please consider acting now. It will take just a moment of your time.

For more information on advocating for Schalmont, please visit our advocacy section on the district website.

SAMPLE STATEMENT

My name is ______________, and I am parent/community member in the Schalmont Central School District. Governor Cuomo's budget leaves Schalmont facing a $1.1 million deficit. I am calling on my local legislators to support full restoration of the Gap Elimination Adjustment in this budget and to ensure Schalmont receives the funds necessary to provide our children with an excellent education. Based on the Executive Budget, Schalmont will be taking steps backward in a society that demands progress. Thank you.
