Statewide School Finance Consortium Response to Governor's Proposal
This response from Dr. Timbs' group points out the short-comings of the Governor's proposal for state aid to public schools.

Advocacy Message for all Constituents
The SSFC coordinated an advocacy event at Queensbury HS in October 2013. This message was sent to all Galway CSD users to get useful advocacy information out to all constituents. As the Legislature is working toward finalizing their budget by April 1, it is important for them to hear from us on the importance of restoring state aid to schools and eliminating the Gap Elimination Adjustment. Under the current proposal, Galway will have lost almost $7m in state aid due to the GEA over the last 5 years.
