East Ramapo School District Budget Released

The East Ramapo School District officials have released a preview of the 2015-2016 budget, allowing parents to take a further look at what will be provided to students in the coming school year. The district was awarded a two percent increase in funding by New York State recently, giving them a proposed budget of $218 million. Officials stated that the increase will allow programs of art and music in the elementary school, as well as the implementation of full-day kindergarten. Officials stated that though the extra funding helps immensely to bring back programs, East Ramapo is still not receiving enough aid to make up for the 24,000 private school students in the district. The school board will vote to approve the proposal at next week’s meeting and all Rockland County School District budgets will be voted on by residents on Tuesday May 19.
