New State Funding will Save Programs, Positions at Yonkers Public Schools

Mayor Spano welcomes Governor Cuomo to Yonkers City Hall

Mayor Spano welcomes Governor Cuomo to Yonkers City Hall

This year when we learned that Yonkers Public Schools faced a $26 million deficit, I asked that we all advocate for additional State funding — and you did. Through rallies, trips to Albany and online petition campaigns, Yonkers came together to fight for our schools.

Today I am proud to announce that Governor Cuomo heard our call, and at a press conference today at Yonkers City Hall, the Governor and I announced new State funding that will save all programs, including art, music and sports, restore full-day pre-k, and prevent teacher layoffs at Yonkers Public Schools.

I’d like to thank Governor Cuomo, our State Delegation, Yonkers City Council, the PTAs and all the students, parents, teachers and Yonkers residents who fought so hard for the resources our school children deserve.

Sincerely,
unnamed (3)
MIKE SPANO
Mayor
