RYE, N.Y. -- Rye schools will receive $107,841 more in state aid in the 2013-14 budget , which Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed last Thursday.

The budget allocates $2,908,296 in state funding for Rye schools. This is a 3.9 percent increase over last year, when Rye received $2,800,455.

These amounts do not include other educational aid that the state will distribute to school districts next year. The state has yet to allocate $203 million in fiscal stabilization funding, $75 million in State of the State initiatives including full-day pre-kindergarten and extended learning grants, and $50 million in performance and management efficiency grants that will be distributed through a competitive process.

The state budget includes $21.1 billion in funding to school districts, a nearly $1 billion increase from last year. Funding that has yet to be distributed makes up 37 percent of the year-to-year increase.
