BILL NUMBER:S4145A

TITLE OF BILL:
An act to amend the education law, in relation to the Syracuse city
school district

PURPOSE:
To provide the Syracuse City School District with additional Academic
Enhancement Aid funds totaling the percentage enrollment growth
multiplied by the District's Foundation Aid in the base year.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This bill would provide the Syracuse City School District with addi-
tional Academic Enhancement Aid funds by providing for additional aid
totaling the percentage increase in enrollment in 2009-2010 multiplied
by the District's total Foundation Aid.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Syracuse City School District has experienced significant
enrollment increases in the 2009-2010 school year. The State's freeze
in Foundation Aid funding does not account for this growth thereby
placing the District in the unfortunate position of having to educate
more pupils with no additional money from the State. This bill would
recognize the increase of 383 pupils, a 1.9% increase, and provide
$4.178 million in additional funds for the District.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
S.4145/A.680 of 2011
A.10505 of 2010

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
$4.178 million for the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect July 1, 2012.
