HARRISON, N.Y. -- The Harrison Central School District will receive $107,401 more in state aid next year, according to the 2013-14 budget that legislators passed and Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed last Thursday.
The budget allocates $3,169,183 in aid to Harrison schools. This is a 3.5 percent increase over this year, when Harrison received $3,061,782. This includes $46,000 in state aid that had been lost earlier this year as a penalty after the district turned in its teacher evaluation plan 19 minutes late.
These amounts do not include other state educational aid that will be distributed to school districts in the 2013-14 school year. The state has yet to allocate $203 million in fiscal stabilization funding, $75 million in State of the State initiatives including full-day prekindergarten and extended learning grants, and $50 million in performance and management efficiency grants that will be distributed through a competitive process.
The state budget includes a total of $21.1 billion in aid to school districts, a nearly $1 billion increase over last year. Funding that has yet to be distributed represents 37 percent of the year-to-year increase.
