Liverpool Central School District will Host an Advocacy Forum on Monday, March 16th:
      I'm  certain you are aware of the ongoing political debate staged between NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo, the Legislature, and further down the food chain -- the staff and unfortunately the students at every public school in the state.  So, I'm sure I don’t need to point out that the state of public education has become a hot button and a intensely debated issue in New York State, as well. You are bombarded with political ads and flyers about this very topic each and every day.
     But public education is a complex issue with topics such as Common Core, teacher evaluations, standardized tests, tax caps and the gap elimination adjustment painting a murky and emotional picture for community members.
      That is why the Liverpool Central School District will host a 'Public Advocacy Forum' regarding the state of public education on Monday, March 16, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Liverpool High School Auditorium.  The forum will provide Liverpool students, parents, community members and business owners with information that will benefit our greater Liverpool community. We also will share opportunities for involvement, awareness and knowledge regarding recent proposals made by the state. These proposals will impact our students and community into the future. 

I encourage you to join us on March 16.

Dr. Mark F. Potter

Superintendent of Schools
