On September 7, 2023, Governor Kathy Hochul visited Tech Valley High School where she signed two education bills into law.

The school served as an example of the importance and benefits of offering advanced placement courses to students and is directly related to one of the bills. The second bill addresses student government in schools.

  • Legislation (A.514-A/S.5650-A) Requires School Districts Provide Parents and Students with Information on Advanced Placement Course Offerings, Their Benefits, and the Support the District Provides for Participating Students
  • Legislation (S.1732/A.6091) Requires the Establishment of Student Governments in High Schools and School Districts Where They Do Not Currently Exist

In addition to holding a press conference for the bills, Governor Hochul toured our innovative school and met with students. Learn more about her visit to Tech Valley High School here or watch the videos below:
