New York state to pay billions of dollars to School districts

Gov. Hochul announced yesterday that New York state is committed to paying billions of dollars in what is being called Foundation Aid to School districts across New York.

Around $20 billion is expected to be given out to districts over the next three years.

It will be up to state legislators to decide on a formula to divide the money.
