The Niagara Orleans School Boards Association will hold a special fall legislative “breakfast.” NOSBA represents the 13 school districts of Niagara and Orleans counties. Superintendents and board members from each district will share concerns relating to reopening, proposed state aid cuts, and broadband internet access/connectivity. 

A press release said, “As we navigate unprecedented challenges during these public health and fiscal crises, working together is crucial. With this meeting, like our annual breakfast meeting in January, we hope to create an opportunity to share our concerns and collaborate on solutions at this critical time.”

Several elected officials have already committed to attending this meeting, including Congressman Chris Jacobs; Assembly members Angelo Morinello, Michael Norris and Steve Hawley; New York State Sen. Robert Ortt; Niagara County Legislature Chairwoman Rebecca Wydysh; Orleans County Legislature Chairwoman Lynn Johnson; Niagara County Legislator Dave Godfrey; and DOH directors Daniel Stapleton and Paul Pettit.

The event begins at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 3. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this event will be conducted virtually through a Zoom webinar. For more, contact NOSBA President Jodee Riordan at [email protected] or Vice President Leslie Tobin at [email protected].
