New funding for some local schools

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced $10.4 million has been awarded to 25 high-need school districts to increase access to quality pre-kindergarten for more than 1,500 three-year-old students across New York. As included in the Governor's 2016 Built to Lead Agenda, this funding aims to support the expansion of pre-k as part of the State’s ongoing efforts to promote early education, specifically in high-need districts, and improve the academic future for all students.

Funding was awarded to school districts based on the quality of the application and other factors, including district and student need, efforts to target the highest need students, and efforts to maximize total number of children served in pre-kindergarten programs.
