Call to Action: APPR and State Aid


March 23, 2016


Support Changes in the Financial Penalties Associated with APPR

Currently, school districts are required to have an approved APPR plan consistent with the changes adopted in the 2015 budget (3012-d) in place by September 1, 2016.

Failure to do so places a district’s 2015-16 and 2016-17 state aid increases at risk of being withheld by the state.

NYSSBA has called for changes to this law. As a part of our 2016 budget request we asked that state aid be delinked from APPR. The Assembly budget proposal includes such language. NYSSBA has also proposed amendments to the law that would allow districts to operate under either an approved 3012-c or 3012-d plan, and still receive their state aid, so long as the plan is implemented. Please urge state leaders to take action to enact these changes. Take Action Now
