VIDEO RELEASE: Maloney and Middletown Superintendent DelMoro Discuss the Return to Schools in Facebook Live

Newburgh, NY – Today, Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18) hosted a Facebook Live with Richard DelMoro, Superintendent of Schools for the Enlarged City School District of Middletown to discuss the process of designing a plan to welcome students, teachers, and staff back safely in the fall amid the pandemic. The Congressman and Superintendent also discussed the importance of federal funding for our schools and the resources Middletown will need in the upcoming semester.

“When it comes to reopening our schools, we’ve got to stop talking politics and start talking public health. Evidence, science, and experts should be our guide. I’m thankful for the opportunity to hear directly from our teachers and administrators about what they need going into the fall semester and will continue to fight for the resources they need to adapt to a new normal that supports every student.” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney.

Representative Maloney and Superintendent DelMoro answered questions from students, teachers and concerned constituents in real-time. The Facebook Live event can be streamed here:

Last week, Rep. Maloney hosted a virtual listening session with a group of Hudson Valley teachers to hear their concerns about returning to the classroom, and discuss the resources they need to teach safely and efficiently in the fall. A recording of that event can be found here.

On both virtual events, the importance of the Heroes Act, House-passed coronavirus relief legislation passed in May – was highlighted. The Heroes Act would dedicate $90 billion to education, including $58 billion for K-12 institutions. Based on funding formula estimates, New York State would receive $5 billion in funding dedicated to our schools.

Additionally, the Heroes Act would provide an estimated $34 billion in new funds for New York State, and an estimated $32 billion in new funds for New York’s counties and municipalities over two years, including an estimated $544 million for Westchester County, $216 million for Orange County, $165 million for Dutchess County, and $55 million for Putnam County.
