WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer released a district by district breakdown Wednesday of the nearly $1.7 billion in direct education funding New York schools will receive from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
President Obama’s plan would add $320 million in new funding for special education and $176 million in new No Child Left Behind money (Title 1) for New York, based on the Congressional Research Service and the Department of Education, respectively.
Chenango County is slated to take in more than $3 million in direct aid to schools. The Norwich City School District’s amount is $844,000; Sherburne-Earlville Central School District, $511,573; and Greene Central School District, $403,632. (See other districts’ amounts below.)
The checks are expected to arrive over the next two months.
