Cuomo: 75% Of Schools Can Cover Aid Cut

Gov. Andrew Cuomo argues that most schools have enough money in their reserve accounts to cover his proposed $1.5 billion aid cut and says that the reductions make up less than 3 percent of schools' overall spending.

"We are going to have to find efficiencies and we're going to have to find economies of scale. The answer can't always be more money, more money, more money. There is no more money, and raising taxes is not an option." ~~ Gov. Cuomo

SCATS ~~ You need to scream it from the rooftops, Andrew! The Greece BOE can't hear you ;)

Perhaps its because the district pissed away too much money over the past 5 years on searches for new leadership staff after ousting perfectly fine, qualified individuals. Just my $.02 (and that's $.02 more than is in reserve).

Does the BOE have the legal right to move money the taxpayers have committed to reserves for specified future expenses? We have put money away for school buses and other items. Would a plan to use those for different expenses require a vote from the taxpayers?
