THE BCSD IS BEING SHORTCHANGED BY NEW YORK STATE.

The NY State School Funding System is broken.

Out of the 46 Westchester-Putnam School Districts, the BCSD ranks:
#4 in English Language Learner (ELL) Student Growth
#7
in ELL Students as a percent of total enrollment
#11 in Free/Subsidized Lunch Students as a percent of total enrollment
And disturbingly...
#40 (OUT OF 46) IN THE AMOUNT OF STATE AID RECEIVED PER STUDENT

                    State funding should flow to districts with the highest need students.
                                                        In NY State, it does not.


Did you know?
The Ossining School District gets $1 million from NY State for taxes on Sing Sing Prison.
The BCSD gets
NOTHING  from NY State for taxes on the Bedford Hills Prisons.
