Senator Joseph Griffo and Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi are saying no to a new charter school in Utica.

The lawmakers have written to State Education Commissioner John King, formally opposing the planned application for the Mohawk Valley Community Charter School.

The organization filing the application is proposing a Kindergarten through fifth grade school to open in the fall of 2015.

Griffo and Brindisi say the time is not right for another charter school in Utica that will have a severe impact on the already cash-strapped Utica School District.

The exisiting Utica Academy of Science receives over $1.5 dollars in state aid.

The legislators say the Utica district cannot afford to lose a comparable amount of fundng to support another charter school.
