New York State Public School System’s Buffalo Public schools have been hit with a record $12.8 billion funding shortfall for the upcoming school year, as it becomes more than six months since the start of the fiscal year.
The state board of education on Wednesday approved a $1.8bn deficit in the district’s fiscal year 2018-19 budget, making it the largest since 2011-12.
The district is the first in New York state to be hit with such a deficit.
“The district’s financial condition has become extremely precarious,” the board said in a statement.
“It is imperative that we address the shortfall to provide our students the quality education that they deserve and to support our district’s continued growth.”
Buffalo Public Schools is a public school system with nearly 50,000 students, and as a result, the district faces substantial financial challenges.
“New York City Public Schools has been hit harder with its $11.6bn shortfall for fiscal year 2019-20.
In the US, the biggest gap in school funding is in Los Angeles, with $13.4bn in the first four months of the year.
More:The LAUSD is currently in the middle of a $6.4 billion funding gap.
The California Education Association and the American Federation of Teachers have also criticized the Los Angeles district, which has been struggling with budget shortfalls.”
The LA district is facing similar issues, with an $11bn deficit for the current fiscal year, according to the LAUSD.”
This is the largest gap in state education funding since 2011 and it is especially concerning when a city that has been named one of the best schools in the country is struggling with such an enormous budget shortfall.”
The LA district is facing similar issues, with an $11bn deficit for the current fiscal year, according to the LAUSD.
It’s been an extremely challenging year for the district.
In August, the LA district announced that it was closing its district schools for the first time in 30 years.
The district had to cut the size of classrooms to accommodate the massive number of students moving into the district over the past five years.
It also closed its public schools to the public after the school system reported record numbers of absenteeism.
Last week, Los Angeles officials announced a plan to close all of its public school schools by 2025, including public schools serving the Westside, the Central Valley and the South Bay.
The LA school district is one of many in California struggling to close budget shortages.
In California, more than half of public school districts have cut staff levels and enrollment numbers in recent years.
A year ago, a study by the New York School Board found that one in six public school teachers in Los Angles were out of a job.
The union has called on Los Angeles to improve its hiring practices and to offer paid leave to teachers.
It is also calling on the LA school board to increase school funding, including through a tax increase.
“We urge the LA School Board to prioritize school funding over closing schools,” the teachers union said.
“If the LA Board does not act to ensure that its funding is adequately supported, the teachers will have to strike.”
