Albion BOE president says school district is committed to continuous improvement

Posted 13 May 2018 at 1:44 pm


My name is Margy Brown and I am seeking re-election to the Board of Education for the Albion Central School District. I reside in Waterport with my husband Eric, and our two sons, both of whom are students at Albion.

Professionally, I have a Master’s degree in Nursing and work as a certified registered nurse anesthetist, and as an acute care nurse practitioner.

As a member of our small rural community, I seek re-election to the Albion School Board because I want to continue to be part of a team that provides the best possible educational opportunities available, while maintaining fiscal responsibility. Albion’s current budget represents the 10th time in the past 12 years the district has either held the line in taxes or reduced them.

The future is bright for Albion and full of many opportunities such as improvements in technology. The District rolled out a new website last fall, Arbiter Live for notification of sporting events, an emergency alert notification system to get important pieces of information out, and has added the school bucks program which was requested by parents to pay for their child’s lunches on line.

The District has a  strong focus on literacy to prepare our students for the future, and has recently added a new reading series in the elementary school as well as adding literacy programs throughout the District.

School safety is an absolute priority, and the District has taken steps to make our buildings safer, and continues to work closely with local law enforcement to ensure the  safety of our District.

The District’s mission of “Achievement, Character and Success for life” is my focus, and guides the direction of the District moving forward. The District is committed to continuous improvement, and I want to be a part of a Board that is passionate in making that happen.

I ask for your support and vote on Tuesday, May 15, from noon to 8 p.m. in conference room A at the Elementary School.
