A preliminary budget discussion was held to discuss the budget implications due to the COVID-19 and NYS budget cuts that have been discussed.  The initial budget cuts released amount to approximately $582,800 for the Salmon River budget.  Currently, those cuts are restored by Federal Pandemic Aid.  This makes the State Aid increase flat from the prior year. Along, with Foundation Aid there are losses expected to other aid categories such as transportation aid, lottery aid and Native American Tuition.  It is expected that there will be another round of budget cuts from NYS issued around May 15th that could be an additional 20% of aid if the Federal Government does not provide assistance.  The Board will set the budget on May 18th.
