Harmed Suburban Five ! started this petition to : gov.cuomo@chamber.state.ny.us and

Fund Foundation Aid at 80% for the Harmed Suburban Five (Ossining, Glencove, Westbury, Portchester and Riverhead Schools)!

Our Districts receive less than 55% of their allocated Foundation Aid based on the formula. 

Since the Foundation Aid Formula was established in 2008, these Districts have experienced*:

• 7% or more enrollment increase 

• 25% or more decrease in the Combined Wealth Ratio (CWR)

• 1.5 or less Combined Wealth Ratio in the 2018-19 school year

The Foundation Aid gap in these Districts will continue to grow as their student needs and enrollment increase. We are simply asking that these Districts are funded at the same level as their peers by providing these Districts with at least 80% of their fully phased-in amount.
