Union-Endicott Superintendent: “Grateful” for Proposed Aid Hike

Bob Joseph/WNBF News

School district officials across New York State are assessing the amount of aid they might expect to receive under Governor Cuomo’s budget plan.

Dr. Suzanne McLeod, Union-Endicott School District superintendent, is expressing cautious optimism based on her initial review of the governor’s proposal.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, McLeod said it appears the district’s state aid could rise by more than five percent based on a preliminary examination of the plan.

McLeod said if that figure holds up in the final state budget, the district would be “very grateful.”

The superintendent said the Union-Endicott district had to deal with aid cuts over the past several years.

McLeod cautioned district officials haven’t had a chance to fully analyze the state aid proposal. She noted changes could be made in the budget that ultimately will be approved by the state legislature.

The U-E Board of Education held its first budget workshop for school district residents Wednesday night.

A public hearing is scheduled for February 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the district office at 1100 East Main Street in Endicott.
