The Roslyn School District Board of Education and administrators presented a revised 2010-11 school budget on March 25 that, according to school district officials, was reduced significantly from the original draft budget that has been under review since February.
The Herricks School District is a big winner in the decision by New York Gov. David Paterson to release monies in school aid and STAR payments.
The governor released the monies earlier this year after being the target of a lawsuit filed in December by a coalition of citizen taxpayer groups and education advocates.
After two years of collective bargaining, the Roslyn Board of Education and Roslyn Teachers Association have agreed to the terms of a new agreement. The four-year contract, school district officials said, contains terms that will yield significant savings for local taxpayers, promote instructional progress and enhance collaboration among the district’s education professionals.
