The 37 Boards of Cooperative Educational Services support the following legislative and budget priorities for 2023. Visit the Advocacy page to learn more.
CTE programs help ensure that businesses in New York have skilled workers, which is essential to their success and that of the state’s economy. Despite these important contributions and proven successes, the state’s funding for CTE programs has not kept pace with program needs

Increase aidable salary for CTE programs, preserve and protect expense-based aids, support the continued phase-in of Foundation Aid, support and promote access to mental health services, and support efforts to address the school bus driver shortage
