NYSSBA Resolution for Submission


Department:Board PresidentSponsors:


Information was recently emailed by NYSSBA to each board member regarding submitting resolutions and proposed bylaw amendments for consideration by the voting delegates at the Annual Business Meeting in the fall.   This annual process sets NYSSBA’s advocacy efforts through the proposal of new positions and the continuation or discontinuation of those set to expire. Only boards of education that are members of NYSSBA and NYSSBA’s Board of Directors may submit resolutions for consideration. Proposed resolutions, once adopted, may direct NYSSBA to advocate either for or against a wide variety of legislative and regulatory issues at both the state and federal levels.


All resolutions and bylaw amendments must be received by the close of business on July 10th to be considered by the Resolutions Committee.


Using the following deadlines, the Board will submit a resolution concerning the start of school time.  This was acted upon at the June 13, 2017 board meeting.
