Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and legislative leaders have reached a budget deal, according to a joint news release.
Moments after the release went out, Assemblywoman Addie Russell, D-Theresa, called to say that the Assembly secured so-called "bullet aid," which she said comes from a discretionary pot of money that the Assembly controls.
North country schools will get $435,000 in additional funds on top of the increase in the school aid formula, Mrs. Russell said.
Here are the schools:
Alexandria Central: $50,000
General Brown: $100,000
Thousand Islands: $50,000
