Wynantskill UFSD 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 72% of the project’s cost is paid for by the state).
Foundation Aid, the category of state aid that supports general education, increases by 1.4% or $23,827 in the Governor’s budget.
The district will share more details about state aid in future budget communications.
Please call the District Office at 518-283-4600 ext. 14 if you have questions. Thank you.
