Fahy introduces bill to extend state transportation aid

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y.—Assembly member Patricia A. Fahy will introduce legislation to extend state transportation aid currently received by students in K-12 to include Pre-Kindergarten students in public schools.

The bill discusses recent efforts to expand Pre-K programs statewide to districts that choose to offer Pre-K.

Without additional aid provided, school districts may not be able to afford the full financial cost of transporting Pre-K students, potentially forcing parents without an alternative method of transportation to forego Pre-K enrollment for their children.
