Assemblyman Curran Secures Additional Education Aid For East Rockaway School District

A statement from Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook-21st AD)
June 23, 2017

Today, Assemblyman Brian Curran (Lynbrook – 21st A.D.) announced that he was able to secure an additional sum of education aid known as “Bullet Aid” will be provided to the East Rockaway School District. East Rockaway, the only school district within the 21st Assembly District not to receive an increase in school aid this year, will receive $13,000 in added funding with no restrictions as to how it may be spent. Curran released the following statement:

“East Rockaway is a unique, middle-class school district which has a small commercial tax base and is misclassified as a middle-wealth district,” said Curran. “It was the only school district in my area that received less state education funding than the previous year. I know how important funding is for all of our school districts, especially East Rockaway, so I advocated for additional funding and I am proud to announce that East Rockaway will receive an additional $13,000 in funding. It is my sincerest hope that we can avoid this entire situation next year by providing adequate and increased funding to all of our schools during the budget process.”
