Sign the Petition and Help Port Chester Obtain Rightful School Foundation Aid
Please help Port Chester Public Schools obtain our rightful school aid by contacting state-elected officials and others who influence state funding for education.
One way to do this is by signing the petition urging our legislators and education leaders to fund Port Chester's Foundation Aid now!
Foundation Aid was established a decade ago to ensure that all students receive their constitutionally guaranteed right to a sound and basic education, regardless of their zip code. The failure to adhere to the original 2007-08 Foundation Aid formula has cut our state aid by more than $168 million over 10 years. This comes at a time when costs have risen and our enrollment has grown by more than 800 students. Read more here!
Thanks to a special scholarship offered by Mercy College, ten lucky elementary school students across the four elementary school buildings will be able to attend the STEM Academy program. Learn more about this exciting opportunity.
