Mandate reform, funding disparity top school boards' concerns

GREENE – The Delaware-Chenango-Madison-Otsego BOCES and the Chenango County School Boards Association held their annual legislative breakfast Saturday at the Silo Restaurant in Greene.

The breakfast gave school officials a chance to voice district concerns to members of the legislature and listen to feedback.



Mandate reform, state funding and representation were all detailed by speakers as being important to Chenango County school systems.

“Nearly one third of all schools are under extreme financial distress,” she said. “There’s no way for our children to achieve academic prosperity.”
