Dear Niagara Wheatfield Education Community,

I would like to invite you to participate in a grassroots advocacy effort that could help save some of our educational programs in WNY. In public schools across the state, as well as here in Niagara Wheatfield, there is concern that our students are being limited in their education programming both now and for the foreseeable future. Without leadership in Albany to provide equitable and adequate funding for schools and meaningful mandate relief, districts have continued to cut staff, programs and fund balances. Our schools are running out of time and options. We need your help in delivering this message to state leaders!

After five consecutive years of cuts to staff and programs, extracurricular, sports and more, eroding state aid and increasing mandates threaten even deeper budget cuts in the coming year. Without swift and significant change in the way New York State supports public education, we will continue to have compromised educational opportunities for children.

The Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA) has depleted the resources available to school districts. Since the first GEA assessment to Niagara Wheatfield, the District has lost approximately $20 million dollars and will continue to lose these resources in the future. Please view this video to learn more about the GEA and it's impact on the students in our state.

I encourage you to support the grassroots effort to 'Do Away with the GEA' by sending that message to our elected officials on behalf of the students of New York State!
