Assemblyman Lawler Announces Historic State School Aid Funding and Presents Grant to the Suffern Central School District

Suffern — Assemblyman Mike Lawler (R,C,I,SAM-Pearl River) announced today a $25,000 Bullet Aid grant, secured in this year's state budget, to go along with nearly $7 million in additional state foundation aid since 2020 for the Suffern Central School District.

“I'm thrilled to stand here today to announce the nearly $7 million in additional state foundation aid invested in the Suffern Central School District in the last two years,” said Lawler. “It is especially meaningful for me to provide this funding and a bullet aid grant to my old high school which will use these funds to install a state-of-the-art projector system that will benefit the arts and theater programs at the High School, as well as many members of the Suffern community for years to come.”

“When I first decided to run for the State Assembly, I pledged that fully funding our educational system would be a top priority, and I'm proud to have delivered for Suffern and districts all across Rockland with historic levels of state school aid. In 2020, many schools in our state were struggling, and I was proud to lead the charge to fully invest in them so that every student can benefit from a quality, affordable education,” concluded Lawler.
