Dire district program cuts now less likely than feared, superintendent says
The New York state legislature’s passage of its 2015-16 state budget on April 1 means that school districts throughout the state can now complete their 2015-16 district budgets, knowing approximately how much state education aid they will receive – which they previously did not know. For the Cazenovia Central School District, this equates to a $357,000 increase in GEA funding – about $130,000 more than the district received in 2014-15 – which will allow the board of education to complete a budget most likely without dire cuts to district programs and personnel, as had been feared.
