Discussion of Local School Issues Thursday at Golding

Written By Editor on 1/17/14 | 1/17/14

The school districts of the County are joining together in an effort to let the public know about issues currently affecting local school districts. The County Superintendents' Council and the School Boards' Association are hosting an event next Thursday, January 23rd at 6:30 at Golding Middle School.

The effort will have a presentation from Dr. Rick Timbs about local issues and difficulties faced by rural school districts.
“Schools across New York are facing a financial crisis, but none so much as rural schools like Cobleskill-Richmondville and other Schoharie County districts,” said C-RCS Superintendent Lynn Macan. “We need to come together as a community and a county to educate ourselves and our legislators on the glaring fact that rural schools are continually under-funded because of inequitable formulas, the Gap Elimination Adjustment, and unfunded mandates imposed by the state.” 
Dr. Timbs will share research illustrating how rural New York state districts continually receive inequitable and insufficient funds in comparison to the rest of the state and what this means for the futures of school districts such as ours.
