Webinar: Federal Stimulus and Your District
May 20, 2021
On Tuesday, May 18 we jointly hosted a webinar with NYSCOSS, The Big 5, ASBONY and SED on the importance of thinking strategically about the use of the recently approved federal stimulus funds. We were fortunate enough have an informative presentation and a Q&A session. For those that were unable to attend, you can access the recording here:
APPR/Tenure Legislation Approved by Assembly
This week, the Assembly passed A.6750 (Benedetto), which would, for the 2020-21 school year, eliminate the requirement to complete an annual professional performance review (APPR). The same bill passed the Senate last week. NYSSBA supports the legislation and continues to advocate for its enactment, recognizing the challenges with completing an informed process as schools continue to navigate the health and educational complexities of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are hopeful that the bill be delivered to the Governor for signature soon.
NYSSBA's Governmental Relations team will continue to report on these and other issues. For more information, visit our Key Issues Page
