Below is the link where our Assembly has made their own proposal in modification of Governor Cuomo’s latest Budget which also addresses 4201 budget issue.

Link: 2011 Assembly Proposed Budget

Page 9 – right column ( near bottom of page) – “Schools for the Blind and Deaf (4201 Schools) 90,800,000″

Page 45 – Aid to Localities section – 3rd bullet: “The Assembly rejects the Executive’s proposal to change the status of Blind and Deaf schools from primarily State supported schools to approved private schools for students with disabilities. The Assembly rejects the cost shift to school districts and restores $90,800,000.”

Page 46 – Article VII – 2nd bullet – “The Assembly rejects the Executive proposal to reclassify State Supported Schools for the Blind and Deaf into approved private schools for students with disabilities and the associated cost shift onto school districts.”

Thanks to Jonathan Dollhopf for sharing this with us.
