NEWFANE SCHOOLS FACE LOSS OF $120,000 IN STATE AID

Superintendent Charlotte Sawyer Tuesday told the Newfane Central School Board that the district stands to lose between $115,000 and $120,000 in state aid this year because of the state's fiscal problems.

"We had a meeting of department heads earlier today and they were asked to suggest cuts and present them at a meeting of the cabinet on Dec. 19. After that, we'll develop an alternative spending plan," Mrs. Sawyer told the board.

She said that the school district was to receive $7 million in state aid for 1990-91.

In other business, the board:

Approved a four-year contract with Civil Service Employees Association workers, including aides and some secretarial workers. The contract provides an average 4 percent wage increase in each of the four years.

Contracted with the C.W. Baker Agency of Lockport, the low bidder, for insurance coverage at an annual cost of $59,500.

Set a new fee policy for use of school facilities by profit-making organizations or non-school groups.
