Advocacy Alert: IDEA Funding and Flexibility

April 14, 2020

Yesterday, NYSSBA sent a letter to New York's Congressional delegation calling for increased funding and flexibility with regard to federal IDEA requirements. NYSSBA believes such action is critically important as districts navigate through these unprecedented times. You can view a copy of that letter below.

State Budget Resources

The Governmental Relations team has also put together some additional resources as you continue to review the state budget's impact on your district and develop your local budget proposals. Using these tools, you can review your 2020-21 Foundation Aid in comparison to 2019-20, see how your district's state aid factors have changed over the past five years and compare various provisions of the enacted state budget to what the Executive proposed in January.

Last week, the Governmental Relations team hosted a webinar for members to review the 2020-21 enacted state budget. If you were not able to listen-in at the time, a recording of the webinar is posted on our website and accessible at your convenience.

NYSSBA's Governmental Relations team will continue to report on these and other issues.  For more information, visit our Key Issues Page and be sure to keep up with NYSSBA on Facebook and Twitter.
