continued “We certainly want to work with our two former school board members, Cecilia Tkaczyk and Pat Fahy, to have any additional funding used in a manner that will best benefit the school districts of New York State,” Steck said in a statement.
Senator Neil Breslin, D-Delmar, also called for more state aid and said it was “critical” to provide adequate funding to schools.
“Our local school districts simply cannot absorb any more cuts,” Breslin said in a statement. “These cuts have already had a negative impact on our students with numerous educational programs being eliminated. Without additional state aid, our local schools will not be able to provide the top-notch education our students deserve.”
