EWTA is joining NYSAPE in SUPPORTING REGENT BETTY ROSA FOR CHANCELLOR & REGENT BEVERLY OUDERKIRK FOR VICE CHANCELLOR
Regent Betty Rosa has extensive experience as a teacher, principal, superintendent, and college professor with a strong background in special education and ELL education.
Regent Beverly Ouderkirk has an extensive background as a teacher, principal, superintendent, and has held several special education leadership positions. Both have traveled the state to talk to stakeholders to collaborate and gather important feedback on education policy.
Additionally, the EWTA joins NYSAPE in calling on the Board of Regents to postpone the elections for the offices of Chancellor and Vice Chancellor until April, when the two open seats are filled with new Regents. The current plan calls for a vote in March (as per the Board’s bylaws), but we believe that it makes very little sense for two outgoing Regents to vote for the next leaders of the Board they will no longer be serving on.
