The NYCLU wrote to Commissioner Rosa to extend the public review period for the 2022-23 Update to the Academic and Fiscal Improvement Plan (AFI) for the East Ramapo Central School District (“ERCSD”). The AFI Plan is essential to addressing the systemic racism in ERCSD and the denial of public school students’ constitutional right to a sound basic education. The NYCLU is requesting that Commissioner Rosa allow at least 15 business days after the Board vote for public review and submission of additional comments, prior to the approval of the Update. 

This will allow for the protection of democratic processes in ERCSD and give students and families that are directly impacted a chance to have their voices heard.
