Senator Joseph Griffo has reached out to members of the State Board of Regents and is encouraging them to attend the re-scheduled Common Core Standards forums across the state.

Griffo is also calling on the board to add an additional forum in Oneida County after the cancellation of the October 30th forum at New Hartford High School.

He calls the decison by State Education Commissioner John King to resume the forums a wise choice.

Griffo hosted a recent visit from King at his Education Town Hall series.

The first of the re-scheduled forums takes place tomorrow night in Albany.
