The Seneca Falls Central School District Board of Education has been named School Board Advocate of the Year by the New York State School Boards Association for its outstanding leadership, focus and effort in public education advocacy. The award was presented to the board at the Association’s Capital Conference in Albany on March 14.
The Seneca Falls Central School District Board of Education is involved in many local advocacy initiatives. Board members meet with representatives of the state Assembly, Senate and governor’s office on a regular basis to discuss ways to improve the quality of education for students.
“The Seneca Falls Central School District Board of Education can always be counted on for their advocacy efforts at the local, state and federal levels,” said NYSSBA Executive Director Timothy Kremer. “For years, this board has served as a model for other school boards to follow.”
In addition to the work they do with NYSSBA, the Seneca Falls Central School District Board of Education is an active partner in the Four County School Boards Association (serving the Wayne-Finger Lakes BOCES region) and the New York Rural Schools Association.
“The increased active participation in advocacy efforts by the Seneca Falls Board during the recent past makes them an honored recipient for the award,” said Robert McKeveny, superintendent, Seneca Falls Central School District.
