      Pushing for more money for CNY schools

      As budget decisions are being made in Albany, the CNY School Boards Association is ramping up its campaign to get more money into school districts.

      The main target this year, the gap elimination adjustment, which reduces the bottom line on how much mone comes to districts. Charles Borgognoni, executive director, says in the past four years, Onondaga County Schools alone have lost 270-million dollars in the state plan to make up its budget deficit.

      Two public information meetings are planned to inform parents and other stakeholders, in hopes that they will, in turn, carry the message of concern to legislators.

      Wednesday's meeting in North Syracuse has been rescheduled to March 12th because of the snowstorm....they're still working out place and time details.
