advocacy toolkitHow Do I Advocate For My Schools and South Colonie Children?

School districts across New York including South Colonie are making devastating cuts to educational programs as they adjust to rising costs that are outpacing revenue. This trend of reductions cannot continue without threatening the quality – and equality – of the education available to all students. Community advocates must speak up now, on behalf of their students and their schools, or risk losing the high level of local public education that they’ve come to expect. Click on our toolkit logo to find out how. Your state representatives in South Colonie are Senator Neil Breslin (455-2225) and Assembly Phil Steck (455-5931) and your Governor is Andrew Cuomo (474-8390). Please do it today!
