SCHUMER REVEALS: WITHOUT FED FUNDS ROCHESTER-FINGER LAKES SCHOOLS MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO SAFELY REOPEN; COSTS OF PPE, PHYSICAL BARRIERS & OTHER SUPPLIES COULD BADLY DRAIN LOCAL RESOURCES, MAKING IT MUCH HARDER FOR ROCHESTER DISTRICTS TO OPEN SAFELY; SENATOR PUSHES PLAN TO COVER THOSE COSTS WITH FED DOLLARS IN ‘COVID-4’ & ALLOW SCHOOLS TO SAFELY REOPEN

Schumer Says Local Schools, Like Those Across The Rochester-Finger Lakes Region, Have Some Federal Guidelines To Reopen Safely Amid COVID-19 BUT Not Enough Fed Funds To Afford Them; Pushes New Plan To Inject $175B Into Nation’s K-12 Schools To Meet The Need Without Fed Funds To Cover Massive Cost Of PPE, Barriers, Cleaning Supplies & More, Local Budgets Would Be Crushed, Local Taxes Could Rise & Some Schools Might Stay Closed   

Schumer: It Would Simply Be Nails On The Chalkboard If A Lack Of Fed Funds Kept Rochester From Safely Reopening Schools   

Dr. Marla Iverson, Executive Director of the Four County School Boards Association stated, "The 25 component districts of the Wayne-Finger Lakes region have worked diligently in difficult financial times to avoid cuts to programs and a negative impact on students. COVID-19 has brought major unplanned expenses that without the help of CCCERA, would force difficult program decisions on the district.  Safety in the journey to reopening schools is paramount to our districts.  The financial support of Senator Schumer’s proposed bill will help to realize this goal."
