Implications for School Districts

Overview

In a collaboration of NYSUT, the Fiscal Policy Institute and Cornell University, a mix of local and state-level analysts interested in quality local services funded with public dollars convened to assess the impact of recent state policies to provide tax relief to local governments. The New York State Association of School Business Officials participated in a panel on the Tax Cap on December 9, 2014 in Saratoga Springs and presented findings and recommendations related to New York State public school districts.
