District leaders thank Senator Farley for
of Education President Deborah Oriola, Board
member Bob Winchester, and Superintendent Susan
Kay Salvaggio met with state Senator Hugh Farley
on Tuesday, July 30, to thank him for the
special aid he secured for the district in the
current state budget.
The $275,000 in special aid was instrumental in
helping the district lower the tax levy in the
voter-approved budget for 2013-14. District
leaders saved a portion of the allotment to help
in the future.
"You are well aware of the financial challenges
faced by the district and have demonstrated your
concern by taking action to obtain this special
aid for Niskayuna Central School District,"
Superintendent Salvaggio said, reading from a
letter to the senator. "We have many challenges
ahead of us, and we look forward to our
continued partnership, excellent channels of
communication and shared actions to sustain the
excellence of our Niskayuna Schools – the
foundation and trademark of our community."
