Update: No aid increase for next two years unless Legislature approves Cuomo’s proposal



According to language in Governor Cuomo’s proposed budget bill, if the legislature does not enact the education reforms the governor outlined in his budget address on Wednesday, Jan. 21, districts will not receive any aid greater than their 2014-15 amount for each of the next two years. 

Complicating matters for districts, the Division of Budget announced that it would not be releasing school aid runs until the Legislature passes the governor’s education reform agenda. The aid runs are usually released within hours of the governor’s budget presentation.

The reforms Mr. Cuomo proposed include an overhaul of the existing teacher evaluation law, more stringent tenure requirements, funding to expand preschool programs, lifting the cap on charter schools, and a new turnaround process for the state’s lowest performing schools.

In all, the $1.1 billion school aid increase includes just more than $1 billion in new school aid, $25 million for expanded preschool programs, and $25 million for other education reforms.

The Executive Budget Proposal now heads to the state legislature for consideration. A final state budget is expected by April 1, 2015.
