Our School Board Matters

We believe public schools are a public good, and we the people have the power to oversee them and effect positive change. Did you know that Buffalo's School Board holds sway over a one BILLION dollar budget? (Twice the size of the city of Buffalo!) And that they have influence over everything from transportation to student life? 

A short visual explainer about the school board

OCAB endorses Jen Mecozzi

"It is clear that Jen is more than willing to not only advocate for the changes that we need in our schools but is also more than capable to lead those campaigns. She embodies the notion that we the people are prepared to govern and therefore prepared to win. Her roots in the community is what brought her to this position and is exactly what keeps her there."—Maria Ta, (former) OCAB Board President
