New State Budget Hikes School Aid
School officials in five of Putnam’s six school districts received good news Tuesday when Gov. Andrew Cuomo unveiled his 2012-2013 fiscal spending plan. For the first time in three years, state aid to local schools increased anywhere from less than one-half of 1 percent to 3 percent. Only the Putnam Valley District will experience a decline in state aid to education.
