The Educational Conference Board (ECB) will hold a briefing for legislators, legislative staff and media on Friday, February 21st, to discuss the governor’s Executive Budget and the needs of students, educators and public schools. The briefing will take place from 10 a.m. to noon in Room 711-A of the Legislative Office Building in Albany.

In November, the ECB released a report calling for a $2.1 billion increase in state education aid in 2020-21 to enable schools to continue current programs and services for students and respond to increasing student needs statewide.

On Friday, ECB leaders will detail their budget request and their analysis of the governor’s proposed budget. In addition, they will discuss their recommendations for addressing educator shortages and diversity.
