LI school aid in the Cuomo proposal

Long Island school districts would receive $2.6 billion in state aid for the 2016-2017 school year under a proposal by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, a 4.2 percent increase from the current aid levels. Click on the map or search the table below for details, which do not include building aid. The New Suffolk, Sagaponack and Wainscott districts are not included because they have fewer than eight teachers and receive state aid through a different funding system.

The last three columns in the table deal with the Gap Elimination Adjustment or GEA, meant to reimburse districts for funding cut in 2010 and 2011 in response to a statewide fiscal crunch.
