2017 Position Statements
Generally, NYSSBA’s Position Statements direct the Association to advocate either for or against a wide variety of legislative and regulatory issues at both the state and federal level. Each fall during the Association’s Annual Business Meeting, the voting delegates consider resolutions advanced by member boards and the NYSSBA Board of Directors. Those adopted become position statements, which lay the foundation for the Association’s advocacy agenda and priority actions.

2017 Legislative Priorities
Drawn from the Position Statements adopted by our members, NYSSBA’s legislative priorities take the positions approved by our members and translate them into concrete recommendations for change that help address issues from reform of the learning standards, to budgetary pressures, to new laws and regulations that impact our students and communities. Our 2017 Legislative Priorities brochure will walk you through NYSSBA’s calls to action.
