Stakeholders from 33 school districts will converge on North Syracuse Junior High School at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, to draw attention to the ongoing fiscal crisis facing public schools.

The forum will also allow these stakeholders to work on developing a firm understanding of the key issues and learning how to be effective advocates for their children, schools and communities.

The event, “Our Kids, Our Schools…Our Future!,’’ has been organized to bring community members of all backgrounds together for an informative and inspiring forum that will let them know what is at stake if state leaders do not eradicate the Gap Elimination Adjustment and provide adequate, equitable and sustainable funding for our schools.

“The goal of  ‘Our Kids, Our Schools… Our Future!’ is to inform the public about the state of the crisis and how it equates to lost opportunities for their children and their communities,’’ said Charles Borgognoni, executive director of the Central New York School Boards Association.

“We are on a mission to inspire people to contact their state legislators and express their concerns as the 2014-15 state budget is hammered out in Albany,” he said.

The featured presenter for the forum is Rick Timbs, executive director of the Statewide School Finance Consortium. Timbs will address the need to repeal the Gap Elimination Adjustment.

The forum is being coordinated by the Central New York School Boards Association in partnership with the Onondaga-Cortland-Madison and Oswego County BOCES.

Attention Town of Palermo veterans.

Town Historian Beverly Beck is seeking information concerning veterans from the town to be added to the historical records.

A few years ago, a book was published from the information gathered about the town’s veterans. Also, there is a display at the Town Hall listing all the veterans with some of the facts regarding their service.

Since that time, there have been many new veterans that are not listed in our current informational database.

If you are a veteran living or born in the town of Palermo, call the historian at 593-6825.  If you had a relative that served in the military who is now deceased, the historian would still like to have their information.

There is a short form to fill in plus the addition of a photograph of the veteran would be appreciated. A copy of the discharge DD 214 papers would most likely answer all questions.

For more information, call Beck at 593-6825.
