This bill would make multiple changes called for by NYSSBA including:

  • Delinking APPR compliance and state aid increases
  • Delaying the effective date until 2016
  • Making the use of independent evaluators optional rather than mandatory


Now is the time to show your support for these changes and urge action!

It is not too late to weigh in on the education tax credit- nearly 500 letters have been emailed  to legislators and the governor, but it is important that they hear from each of you.
