Governor's Executive Budget

  • Dear Niagara Wheatfield Families,

    The NYS Budget Process is under way and unfortunately, the Governor's Executive Budget does not provide the funding necessary to keep our programs intact.  Fortunately, the budget process is far from over and our local NYS Representatives have pledged their support in the push for providing additional funding to education in NYS.  The link below is a recorded message, which provides some background on Governor Hochul's Foundation Aid proposal and the soon to expire Federal Stimulus funds.  In the coming weeks, we may be asking for your support in a letter writing campaign to the Governor.

    Here is the link to our recorded message:

Title I

  • Title I is a federally funded program providing additional support to school districts based on achievement, the number of low-income children in a District / School’s attendance area and the statewide average per pupil expenditures. Resources within the state are targeted to the districts and schools with the greatest need.  Title I funds are generally used to improve academic achievement in reading, math and may also include support for greater parent involvement.  In return, school districts must meet accountability requirements for raising student performance.

    Title I requires that District staff work collaboratively to support students and jointly develop policies and plans which lead to greater parent involvement. Niagara Wheatfield CSD works diligently to keep parents involved as key participants in their children’s education.  The policies linked on the left have been jointly developed with staff and parents to ensure an effective implementation of the Niagara Wheatfield CSD Title 1 program.
