State budget increases aid to local schools
The new state budget approved by Albany this week will increase state aid to schools over the levels the Governor had proposed.
Locally, that means some jobs and academic programs will be preserved, but the aid will not cover all of the budget gaps for local schools. A majority of the increased aid will go to what are considered high-needs districts, such as Buffalo.
The News reports that the only district in Erie and Niagara Counties not to receive aid was Holland.
