$219,022 Loss of Aid for Elmont and Sewanhaka Schools

The New York State School Boards Association compiled a spreadsheet outlining the immediate impact of sequestration on New York State School Districts.

Elmont Union Free School District ($81,144) and the Sewanhaka Central High School District ($137,878) will lose approximately $219, 022 while spending in excess of $250,000 in new teacher evaluation mandates passed down from Albany Lawmakers.

The following video was produced by an upstate Public School advocacy group. The group is often seen as hostile to Long Island when it comes to the distribution of "Shares" to public schools. Notwithstanding the Upstate v Downstate debate, the video is a clear representation of how Albany define "State Aid Increase"  You do the math, local School are loosing over half a million dollars to sequestration and new State mandates.

Demand that nassau county fine and tax illegal apartments in single family homes. Owners pay single family home rates and rent out rooms to families that use our schools and services. We are paying for overcrowded schools while landlords collect tons of money and pay the same taxes we do

Today, we are talking to people about sustainable economic development, because we think it's important to show support for key issues that affect our community - like places in the Elmont for young professionals to live, shop and be entertained; like keeping families closer together and rebuilding the economic and social pillars of the community.
