The Harmed Suburban 5
Every year for the past decade, members of the Harmed Suburban Five - Port Chester, Glen Cove, Westbury, Ossining and Riverhead - have urged Albany for increased funding.
We are overwhelmingly different from other districts in New York State in that we are experiencing: • Significant enrollment growth • Nearly a 50% increase in student receiving Free & Reduced Lunch • Substantial decrease in our communities’ combined income & property wealth ratio • Significant increase in students requiring English Language Learning resources
The Harmed Suburban 5 receives less than 50% of our Foundation Aid level, while the state average is 80%. This directly impacts our students.
ALL children from across the state should be treated fairly!
