Frankfort-Schuyler School Board Discusses Budget Shortfall

Frankfort, NY (WIBX) – Some tough decisions for the Frankfort-Schuyler Central School Board.  A shortfall in state aid has the district looking to close a nearly $1.9 million gap.

Residents turned out in droves Wednesday night to hear the school board’s plan and to have their voices heard.

One of the two plans outlined at last night’s meeting includes the closure of West Frankfort Elementary and integrating the nearly 250 student into two other schools.

Increased class sizes, longer bus trips and a 10% tax hike have most residents worried.
            

Amelia Jacobs lives in Schuyler and has two young children in the district.

She’s worried about her children’s safety as they get up early and go to the bus stop.    

The school board says it will be following up on the district’s website.

The budget needs to be in place by early April.
