In an effort to strengthen the district’s school-to-community partnership and keep open lines of communication, the Babylon School District recently held its third annual Legislative Advocacy Workshop and Community Summit focused on important educational matters and community safety guidelines.

To begin the program, Superintendent of Schools Linda Rozzi gave a warm welcoming address to all in attendance, thanking them for their continued support of Babylon’s multiple initiatives geared toward enhancing the school and community as a whole.

Throughout her message, she shared an overview of the district’s recent successes, and invited attendees to share any ideas they had that would benefit the overall the community. Items discussed included the district’s prudent financial plans to fund programs that support students as well as cost saving initiatives and efficiencies planned during the proposed 2018-19 school budget. 

In addition to the district representatives who were on hand, multiple elected leaders were in attendance and spoke about the collective community effort toward enhancing education. Attendees included New York State Sen. Phil Boyle, New York State Assemblywoman Christine Pellegrino, Councilman Terence F. McSweeney and Babylon Village Mayor Ralph Scordino, each of whom discussed how they are taking the necessary steps in maintaining a safe and educationally prosperous environment for all Babylon residents.
