ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — It looks like the Rochester City School District will receive the $35 million it has been asking from the state.
State Sen. Rich Funke tweeted Wednesday morning, saying the briefing lawmakers received would put a fiscal monitor in place at the district until 2023 and provide $35 million a year for 30 years with payments declining by $1.5 million a year.
RCSD Superintendent Terry Dade confirmed the district secured the funding for this school year over Twitter Wednesday afternoon.
We got the BIG YES!!! Thank you to Governor Cuomo, our state legislature, and our entire RCSD family and community for rallying with me as we worked relentlessly to secure $35 million to make us whole this school year! @RCSDNYS pic.twitter.com/x7cpYRgfLs— Terry J. Dade (@TDade) April 1, 2020
