Body

The July meeting of the Governing Board of the American Association of School Administrators will be meeting on July 10 in Washington, DC.  I am currently in the second year of my second term to this elected office.  There are six superintendents who represent New York State on this governance body of AASA.  The meeting is immediately followed by the Annual Advocacy Conference on Monday afternoon with visits to the Capitol on Tuesday.  Our NYS contingency will be meeting with staff from Senator Schumer and Gillibrand’s Office on Tuesday.  A few of my colleagues will be meeting with Congressman Paul Tonko as well.  A key topic will be the federal budget and the impact on Medicaid for schools.  We receive a full briefing on the issues on Monday afternoon and again early on Tuesday at our Congressional Breakfast.  The conference wraps up on Wednesday morning.
