Alfred-Almond Getting Less Funding Than Similiar Size Schools
March 14, 2014
Alfred-Almond Central School Superintendent Rich Calkins says that Alfred-Almond and Arkport Central both showed up in a report as getting less funding than similar sized schools. “It’s according to a new report that was recently commissioned and released by the Rural School’s Association, where it showed very clearly that for the past five years, Alfred-Almond among other area schools including Arkport, is one of the schools that has been funded disproportionately low in comparison to other schools of our size,” Calkins told WLEA News.
We asked Calkins about Alfred-Almond’s ranking: Calkins replied that Alfred-Almond Central is 31st in upstate schools, and has been praised by both Time and Newsweek articles as one of the top thousand public schools in the country, for AP exams and SAT scores
