Governor Cuomo’s proposed NYS budget will have grave consequences for the Harrison Central School District

unnamed
March 23, 2015

Dear Community Member:

Governor Cuomo’s proposed NYS budget will have grave consequences for the Harrison Central School District and the students of our community.

Our December letter writing campaign to Senator Latimer and Assemblyman Buchwald provided them with needed support to pressure the Governor into restoring the $3.8 million taken from the taxpayers of Harrison by the GEA. The Governor’s proposed budget makes no mention of returning these funds, even though the state has a budget surplus. In this new campaign, we all must compel Governor Cuomo to provide adequate education funding without attaching it to controversial reforms that are not based on sound research and are not beneficial to our children.

We need you to support your children’s futures by taking the following actions:

  • Please send a letter to Governor Cuomo by clicking on link at the bottom of this e-mail.
  • Please call Governor Cuomo’s office at: 518-474-8390. Tell him, “My children deserve full funding for their education, without connecting it to controversial reforms. In a time of surplus, it is imperative that the $3.8 million dollars taken from Harrison to balance the NYS budget be returned.”

Everything that makes the Harrison Central School District great is at risk. For over 10 years, the residents of Harrison have made wise investments in our district, providing carefully developed academic programs that support ALL children in small classes, an award winning K-12 fine and performing arts program, and a successful 7-12 athletic program.

As presented by Superintendent Louis Wool at the most recent Board of Education meeting, our current budget trajectory is unsustainable. New York State has taken away our ability to continue to build upon our success. We are facing increased class sizes, cuts to our academic programs, and cuts to our fine and performing arts and athletic programs, including modified sports.

We know that parents make a difference and we need your voice to support our schools. Thank you.

Abby Mendelsohn, President
Joan Tiburzi, Vice-President
Dennis DiLorenzo, Trustee; Rachel Estroff, Trustee; Kelly Mangan, Trustee; Robert Sullivan, Trustee; Lindy Wolverton, Trustee
