School Governance and Authority

School board governance is one of the most direct forms of democracy. Proposals that threaten that authority and autonomy must be responded to immediately, which is a central part of NYSSBA’s advocacy efforts. At the same time NYSSBA works to ensure that unnecessary administrative burdens are removed to  enable boards of education to focus their resources give their students access to education and opportunities Here you will find information on actions that impact school district governance and examples of NYSSBA’s efforts to protect local authority and decision making.
