SCHENEVUS, N.Y. -- A bill proposed by Senator Seward will give advanced state aid payments to Schenevus Central School District.
The district is currently operating with a $700,000 budget deficit and has been designated as one of five school districts in the state facing "significant financial distress."
Under this new bill, Schenevus will be eligible to receive an advance aid payment of up to $500,000 this year with the sum decreasing over the next 30 years to support the district's educational program.
The legislation must still be approved by the state Assembly and signed by the governor to take effect.
