State policymakers have the responsibility of making powerful decisions that impact education. The New York Educator Voice Fellowship strives to provide an opportunity for legislators to observe students and teachers engaged in instruction by training New York educators to host their own Bring Your Legislator to School day events.

I am excited to host a legislator at my school because this event will help strengthen the school-community bond. BYLTSD will allow Senator Addabbo to visit a variety of educational settings, seeing the many forms of student achievement. It is so important for students to know that legislators care about their learning and academic success. This visit is sure to instill that knowledge within our student population and help them realize their importance as members of a larger community outside of school.
