School Administrator Groups Join Forces for Statewide Representation

Written By Editor on 9/13/22 | 9/13/22

The School Administrators Association of New York State (SAANYS) is pleased to announce that the New York State Federation of School Administrators (NYSFSA) has agreed to become a partner organization of SAANYS. NYSFSA members are administrators in the three local unions within New York City, Yonkers, and Buffalo. The partnership and acquisition of approximately 6,500 additional active SAANYS members represents unprecedented growth and unity for the representation of school administrators through every corner of New York State.

Research has shown that strong school leadership equates to more successful learning environments and better educational outcomes. Since 2006, SAANYS and NYSFSA have collaborated in many ways to support school leaders in their work to build brighter futures for New York's students. Such efforts have included professional learning, legislative advocacy, and a voice at the table on many matters. Incorporating NYSFSA membership into SAANYS provides even a greater unity of voice to present to legislators and regulators.

"Improving the quality of education in our schools takes leadership, vision, and coordinated action," said SAANYS Executive Director Kevin Casey. "We have always wanted to be sure that our members' opinions are heard on critical issues such as education funding, safe schools, mandates, retirement benefits, and state and federal reform initiatives. This affiliation will provide SAANYS with a stronger unified presence and voice to influence legislation, policymaking, and support for the profession and our schools."

"The New York State Federation of School Administrators is proud to join forces with SAANYS as an official partner organization," said NYSFSA President Mark Cannizzaro. "When school administrators throughout our great state stand united, we can make an incredible impact on the lives of New York educators and the families they serve. This affiliation solidifies a relationship that has been built over many years, and we look forward to our ongoing collaboration."

SAANYS is proud of its long history of supporting New York's public-school administrators and our continued growth. This arrangement is yet another significant milestone in our history. SAANYS now represents the interests of over 14,000 practicing school administrators and over 7,000 retired administrators, securing SAANYS as by far the largest association in New York State representing school leaders.

As a professional association, SAANYS is committed to providing direction, service, and support to the membership in their efforts to improve the quality of education and leadership in New York State schools. SAANYS is affiliated with the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) and the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP).
