A message from the North Syracuse Central School District Superintendent and Board of Education:
North Syracuse Central School District students and the community need your support in fighting to repeal the Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA) starting in the 2014-15 school year.
The GEA is a formula in the state budget that reduces the amount of aid each school district is entitled to receive. Reductions have taken place since 2010, resulting in the devastating loss of aid for the North Syracuse Central School District of more than $38 million.
This annual practice is detrimental to quality education in Central New York and is not acceptable to taxpayers. Now is the time to work together to eliminate the GEA.
The link below is a letter that can be printed and addressed to legislators. You may also copy the text from the letter and paste it into an email. Legislator mailing addresses and email addresses can be found below.
More information about the GEA and the impact it has had on the North Syracuse Central School District is also available as a link below.
