Different Cayuga County-area school districts hope to receive more in school aid than originally presented in Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s proposed school aid projections for the 2018-2019 executive budget.
Auburn Enlarged City School District Superintendent Jeff Pirozzolo said the district’s 1.38-percent foundation aid increase is not enough to cover staff’s health insurance benefits for next year, let alone other considerations. Foundation aid is the base aid school districts receive.
“My concern is that we continue not to get aided the way that we’re supposed to be,” Pirozzolo said.
Pirozzolo mentioned Cuomo’s recent remarks on wanting to give more aid to poor districts.
