On October 28, 2019, the Eastchester PTA Council and Tuckahoe PTA hosted a community forum at the Eastchester Middle School to discuss the Foundation Aid Formula, and the inequitable distribution of funds allocated by the State of New York to our school districts, including Eastchester and Tuckahoe. Shelley Mayer, New York State Senator for the 37th District and Chair of the Committee on Education, as well as Amy Paulin, New York State Assemblywoman, 88th Assembly District, were guests for this event. Ms. Mayer and Ms. Paulin put the issue into historical context and explained the formula, but more importantly discussed ways in which parents, community and school leaders, and PTAs can advocate for equitable funding. Tara Zegers, President of the Tuckahoe PTA, presented information regarding Tuckahoe. We encourage you to watch the video of the event and learn how you can be a meaningful part of this discussion to support the students of Tuckahoe.
