Voter Voice

To the Byram Hills School Community,

The PTSA and the Byram Hills School District are reaching out to you with a request to have every parent send this message to Governor Hochul, and cc: State Senator Shelley Mayer and Assemblymember Chris Burdick.

Governor Hochul has proposed a state budget that is set to cut the Foundation Aid that most schools currently receive. The Governor’s proposal would result in a loss of $856,000 over the next two years for Byram Hills, which is significant and unwarranted based on the Governor’s arbitrary adjustment to the Foundation Aid budget. Please act now on behalf of Byram Hills and all other districts by sending the Voter Voice email today. Senator Shelley Mayer and Assembly member Chris Burdick will actively support the needs of our schools when they face the Governor.

Feel free to contact the Assistant Superintendent for Business at or Jen Lamia if you have any questions.

Thank you,

Jen Lamia, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
