6/30/16: Gov. Cuomo Signs ERCSD Compromise Legislation

East Ramapo’s children and their families had a first legislative success last night when Governor Cuomo signed into law, effective July 1,   a bill authorizing the continuation of monitors, an additional $3 million for restoration of programs, the development of a long-term improvement plan, and increased oversight of the district’s budget by the Commissioner. It is a significant, albeit modest, step to increasing accountability and transparency to the district.

The bill is to last for three years and provide $5 million/year to the district. The bill is a compromise, a first step on which to build further support to help make up for the long-term damage incurred by children in ER.

See the Bill below…
