SCHENEVUS, N.Y. – The New York State United Teachers (NYSUT) stopped by Schenevus Central School Wednesday with their ‘Fund our Future’ bus, to push for more state funding at area schools.

NYSUT says Schenevus is owed more than $700,000 in foundation aid.

“My big thing is, I understand education is expensive but we need to make our students globally competitive and be able to compete with other students when they go to college and out in the workforce, and we just aren't able to do that. The funding is not equitable. There are schools that are getting much more funding than they should be getting and there are schools like us that are not getting the funding that was allocated,” said Theresa Carlin, superintendent of Schenevus Central School.

The school has had to cut AP classes, increase class sizes and go without a librarian due to the lack of funds.

The bus also made a stop in Elmira.

The New York State Educational Conference Board is asking for a $2.1 billion increase in state aid in the 2020-2021 budget to help struggling districts.
