NYS Budget News

The good news for schools: The budget was almost on time, allowing schools to budget more accurately. More $ than the governor originally suggested. Foundation Aid maintained.

The bad news for schools: More $ for charters. No lift on the cap on aid for Career & Tech teacher salaries. Really lopsided aid. (In Tompkins, % change in total aid runs from +0.03 for Trumansburg to +9.53 for Lansing.)

It will be interesting to see whether ride-sharing services upstate lead to fewer cars on campus and more parking everywhere. Wouldn't that be nice.
