On Tuesday, October 4 members and supporters of the Peekskill City School District gathered at Ossining High School to join others in the EdWalk for CFE (Campaign for Fiscal Equity). The walk, which was spearheaded by the Alliance for Quality Education of New York, marks the 10-year anniversary of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity court decision which ruled that the state is systemically underfunding Black, Latino, and low-income students in many districts across New York.

On Tuesday, September 20, the Peekskill City School District joined other schools in Westchester County and across the nation in “Dads Take Your Child to School Day.” This is the third year that Peekskill has participated in the initiative, and it was the District’s most successful year ever. A total of 574 father figures, (which included dads, brothers, uncles, grandpas and even a few females), turned out to accompany their students to school. That’s approximately 170 more participants than last year’s campaign drew.
