Last year, with the overwhelming support of our community, Yonkers was successful in its first step in rebuilding Yonkers Public Schools. Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature approved and signed legislation enabling the city to form the Yonkers Joint Schools Construction Board, the official steering committee that will oversee the repairing and rebuilding of Yonkers’ 39 schools. But that was just the beginning.
Our next step is to secure the funding to rebuild our schools. Continue to support our campaign to Rebuild Yonkers Schools, share our latest advocacy video and tag our State Legislators and Governor with #Fund2Rebuild.
