  • Carta de voz del votante

    17 de marzo del 2023

    Estimado Miembro de la Comunidad Pawling,

    Les escribimos hoy para pedir su ayuda en nuestros esfuerzos de abogacía de los problemas clave de educación pública que afectan a todos los estudiantes, incluidos nuestros estudiantes aquí en Pawling.  Su participación en nuestras campañas de cartas electrónicas, rápidas y fáciles, ayudará a enviar el mensaje a los legisladores del Estado de Nueva York de que apreciamos el apoyo que han mostrado en sus presupuestos de unifamiliares y su respuesta a nuestros esfuerzos de abogacía hasta el momento.  Continuamos pidiendo el apoyo de nuestras escuelas públicas y estudiantes de escuelas públicas.


    Apoye La Educación Pública:  Nuestro objetivo es garantizar la estabilidad fiscal a largo plazo de los distritos escolares públicos del Estado de Nueva York.  Con el financiamiento completo de la fórmula de Ayuda de la Fundación 2007 finalmente ocurriendo en el próximo año escolar, reconocemos cuán obsoleta está la fórmula para tener en cuenta las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes y los costos de funcionamiento de las escuelas públicas.  Esperamos que el Estado de Nueva York ayude a actualizar la fórmula de financiamiento de manera regular para garantizar que la ayuda operativa a los distritos escolares se base en las necesidades actuales.  Ambos presupuestos de unifamiliares incluyen actualmente fondos para estudiar este importante asunto.

    Enfoque en la Salud Mental de los Estudiantes:  Nuestro objetivo es solicitar una fuente de ayuda estatal a largo plazo para apoyar los recursos de salud mental de los estudiantes que estarán disponibles para todos los distritos escolares.  Esto podría usarse para el personal como psicólogos escolares, trabajadores sociales y consejeros de orientación.  Podría brindar entrenamiento para todos los maestros sobre cómo responder mejor a los estudiantes que necesitan asistencia o acceso a recursos de telesalud para estudiantes.  Muchos jóvenes necesitan ayuda con su salud mental y estamos pidiendo al Estado de Nueva York que nos ayude a financiar programas y servicios en nuestro distrito.

    Alimentos Escolares Para Todos:  Nuestro objetivo es garantizar que todos los estudiantes sean alimentados a través del programa de alimentos escolares.  Durante la pandemia, el gobierno federal proporcionó exenciones que permitieron que todos los estudiantes recibieran comidas a través del Programa Federal de Almuerzos.  Estamos abogando ante los legisladores federales para que continúen brindando alimentos escolares gratuitos para todos los estudiantes de manera permanente.  Ambos presupuestos unifamiliares incluyen actualmente fondos para comidas escolares universales.

    Si desea participar, haga clic en el enlace a continuación y seleccione cada carta de abogacía "Apoye La Educación Pública", "Enfoque en la Salud Mental de los Estudiantes" y "Alimentos Escolares Para Todos", luego lea el cuerpo del mensaje para cada carta.  Cada campaña debe enviarse por separado.  Para enviar, simplemente ingrese su información en Redactar Su Mensaje y presione el botón Enviar.  Solo debe tomarse unos minutos y los correos electrónicos se enviarán automáticamente a sus representantes.  Gracias por su continuo apoyo.

  • Voter Voice Letter

    Dear Pawling Community Member,

    We are writing today to ask for your help in our advocacy efforts for key public education issues that affect all students, including our students here in Pawling.  Your participation in our quick and easy e-letter campaigns will help send the message to NYS legislators that we appreciate the support they have shown in their one-house budgets and their response to our advocacy efforts thus far.  We continue to ask for their support of our public schools and public school students.

    Support Public Education: Our goal is to ensure the long-term fiscal stability of public school districts in New York State. With the full funding of the 2007 Foundation Aid formula finally occurring in the coming school year, we recognize how out of date the formula is in accounting for the needs of our students and the costs of running public schools. We look to New York State to help update the funding formula on a regular basis to ensure that operational aid to school districts is based on current needs.  Both one-house budgets currently include funding to study this important matter.

    Focus on Student Mental Health: Our goal is to ask for a long-term source of state aid to support student mental health resources that will be available to all school districts. This could be used for staff such as school psychologists, social workers, and guidance counselors. It could provide training for all teachers in how to best respond to students who need assistance, or access to telehealth resources for students. So many young people need assistance with their mental health and we are looking to New York State to help us fund programs and services in our district.

    School Meals for All: Our goal is to ensure that all students are fed through the school meals program. During the pandemic, the federal government provided waivers that allowed all students to receive meals through the Federal Lunch Program. We are advocating to federal legislators to continue to provide free school meals for all students on a permanent basis. Both one-house budgets currently include funding for universal school meals.

    Should you wish to participate, please click the link below and select each advocacy letter “Support Public Education,” “Focus on Student Mental Health,” and “School Meals for All,” then read the Message Body for each letter.  Each campaign must be sent separately.   To send, simply enter your information under Compose Your Message and hit the send button. It should only take a few minutes and emails will automatically be sent to your representatives. Thank you for your continued support.
