Bill To Aid Schenevus Schools Passes State Senate

State Senator James Seward announced senate approval of legislation to aid the Schenevus Central District by authorizing advanced state aid payments and establish a long-term plan to stabilize the school district’s finances. The district is currently operating with a $700,000 budget deficit and state comptroller Thomas DiNapoli recently designated Schenevus as one of five school districts in the state facing significant financial distress. The legislation must still be approved by the state assembly and signed by the governor to take effect.
