Andrew Cuomo presented a state budget proposal on Tuesday, Jan. 17, that includes a $1 billion increase in overall funding for the state’s schools in the 2017-18 school year.

When School Messenger leaves a message, please listen: Jan. 27, 2017 -- As a reminder about today’s early dismissal in grades K-8, Superintendent of Schools Michelle Brantner sent out a recorded School Messenger message to the phone numbers the district keeps on file for all families.
