CEC 26 calls for amendments to class size reduction bill, geographic priorities


The members of Community Education Council (CEC) 26 approved a resolution during Wednesday’s meeting calling for amendments to be made to the class size reduction bill and urging for geographic priorities within the district’s high schools to be retained. Additionally, CEC 26 released a statement on the school budget reductions.

The amendment that CEC 26 requested for Gov. Kathy Hochul to consider making to the class size reduction bill was related to a series of provisions. One provision was for the funding of other allowable programs under the Contracts for Excellence to not be reduced from current levels to fund the mandated reductions in class size.
