BILL NUMBER:S5031

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to provide for the payment of public high cost excess cost aid for the
2008-2009 school year to the Wyandanch union free school district

PURPOSE:
This bill provides for the expeditious payment of public high cost
excess cost aid for the 2008-2009 school year to the Wyandanch union
free school district.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of the bill requires the New York State Education Department
to pay to Wyandanch UFSD the 2008-2009 public high cost excess aid
that it is entitled to from the supplemental aid payable during the
2011-2012 state fiscal year prior to the payment of supplemental aid
to any other school district.

Section 2 of the bill contains the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
The Wyandanch UFSD, through administrative oversight, failed to apply
for its NYS Department of Education 2008-2009 "public high cost
excess cost aid" worth approximately $1.5 Million. The District is
currently facing considerable layoffs and the receipt of the
aforementioned aid in the 2001-2012 school year would allow many of
those jobs to be saved.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None. These monies are already designated to be paid by the Department
of Education.

LOCAL FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Timely infusion of $1,500,000 to the Wyandanch UFSD.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
