COLONIE, N.Y. -- Schools across 47 districts are coming together Thursday night to discuss the Gap Elimination Adjustment.
The "New York Schools STILL In Fiscal Peril" event will take place at 6:30 p.m. at South Colonie High School.
The purpose of the night is to bring everyone together to better understand public education's funding battle with the state of New York. The 47 districts combined have lost almost four hundred million in state aid through these cuts, according to officials.
"We want the future of New York to be very, very bright and very, very prosperous. And so we are going out and we are looking for our Governor to give us the funding that we desperately need," said Sean Crall of the East Greenbush Teachers' Union.
The event will feature a panel discussion on the impact the Gap Elimination Adjustment, the distribution of state aid, and the effect mandates will have on schools this year.
