School Budget InformationClarifying Times Union Article About State Aid

Schodack CSD would like to add clarity to a recent Times Union article that stated the district expects a large increase in state aid. The article fails to mention that the increase in the Governor's budget is due to reimbursement for the Capital Project (approximately 76% of the project's cost is paid for by the state). Foundation Aid, the category of state aid that supports general education, increases by 1.1% or $56,354 in the Governor's budget. The district will share more details about state aid in future budget communications. Please call the District Office at 518-732-2297 if you have questions. Posted 1/22/18.
