Funding Increase For Schools


schoolThe recently approved New York State budget will mean more funds for the Roslyn School District.

According to State Senator Jack Martins (R-Mineola), the 2014-15 state budget will deliver over $4.3 million in state education aid for students and taxpayers in the district.

The over $4.3 million in state education aid for the Roslyn School District, Martins said, will help fund programs, services and operations within the district.

The funding level, Martins added, represents an increase of 5.87 percent (over $217,000) from the prior year’s total, and is an increase over what Governor Andrew Cuomo proposed in his executive budget proposal.

“Roslyn’s students and taxpayers will benefit from this over $4.3 million investment,” claimed Senator Martins. “This state education aid will help the Roslyn School District educate children while easing the burden on local property taxpayers. I am pleased the state budget delivers this important funding to the Roslyn community.”
