School districts in Cattaraugus County will share a more than $5 million increase in state aid in the $178 billion New York state budget passed last week.

Cattaraugus County schools will see an increase of $5.3 million in aid in 2020-21. The combined state aid for the 12 school districts in the county is $204,830,695.

Like other counties, the school districts here will each receive a federal CARES restoration grant for $4,499,957 in Cattaraugus County. There is an identical accompanying debit for the New York “pandemic adjustment” for each district.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has also said due to the pandemic, school aid will be recalculated each quarter, based on the amount of revenue received, so districts are not guaranteed these aid levels.

The governor has also delayed school budget votes and school board elections until at least June 1, under a March 29 executive order. They may even be pushed back to the day of the state’s June 28 primary.

Cattaraugus County school districts, their 2020-21 school aid without building or reorganization aid, and the percent increase follow:

• Allegany-Limestone — $16.1 million, 3.15%

• Cattaraugus-Little Valley — $19.8 million, 5.99%
