Hot Off the Presses
Sen. Schumer Calls on Feds to Reimburse LI School Districts for Sandy Services
Transporting Displaced Students Have Cost LI Schools Over $1,000,000
U.S. Sen. Charles E. Schumer, chair of the Hurricane Sandy Rebuilding Task Force, Monday called on the U.S. Dept. of Housing & Urban Development to reimburse over a dozen LI school districts for costs to transport displaced students in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. According to the McKinney Vento Assistance Act, districts must provide transportation to homeless or displaced students within a 50 mile radius of their district. But the cost of complying with the law is eating away at district budgets—combined, they have spent over $1 million to provide for the transportation needs of displaced students. Schumer, who wants to ensure that the financial burden does not fall on taxpayers, is calling on the federal government to find a way to help reimburse the districts that have been providing ongoing transportation services to the approximately 1,000 students displaced by the storm.
