(Albany, NY) -- High need school districts in the Hudson Valley are eligible for after school program funding.
Yesterday Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that a handful of schools across the state are eligible to partner with non-profit agencies for quality after school programs. Eligible local school districts include, Poughkeepsie City Schools and the Newburgh Enlarged District. Thirty-five-million dollars in funding is up for grabs.
“First announced in January as part of the Governor's 2017 State of the State, funding has been enacted in the 2017-2018 Budget allowing districts to receive five-year grants of $1,600 per student. Districts must adopt quality indicators assessing environment, staff-to-student interaction and student outcomes. “
