FOR RELEASE: December 14, 2016
CONTACT: David Albert
A restart of the Foundation Aid formula with a three year phase-in plan for full funding tops the list of legislative priorities for the New York State School Boards Association (NYSSBA) in 2017.
In addition, changes to the property tax cap, support for English Language Learners, and additional funding for prekindergarten are among the Association's other priorities.
As Governor Andrew Cuomo prepares to present his State of the State Address and state budget in January, NYSSBA has put forth a series of legislative priorities which would enhance and improve the quality of education for our students in public school districts across the state.
