Revised East Ramapo School Bill Proposed by Senate

The state Senate introduced a bill late Sunday, that calls for the State Comptrollers office to oversee the East Ramapo School District, rather than an independent monitor appointed by the Education Department. Local Democrats have opposed this idea in the past, brought forth by the school board. In the revised bill, the Board of Education for East Ramapo would be required to submit the proposed budget for the following year to the Comptrollers Office at least 30 days before the budget vote. The Comptroller would review the budget to make sure funds are being spent efficiently for the needs of the school district, including those students attending private schools as well as other needs within the district. There are only a few days left in the legislative session, and it is unclear as to whether or not representatives will reach a decision by sessions end.
