Is it new that we are receiving Title I funding?
No, we have been receiving Title I funds for many years. In fact, in the 2007-08 & 2008-09 school year we received as a LEA $450,000 each year. We received over $350,000 in Title I as a LEA for the 2017-18 school year. The two private schools in our boundaries, Green Chimneys and Longview, receive a portion of these funds based upon a formula determined by NYSED. Additionally, BCSD residents who attend private schools outside of our boundaries who qualify for free/reduced lunch also receive some of these funds.
