ALDEN SCHOOL BOARD EYES BELT-TIGHTENING MEASURES

The Alden School Board is considering tightening its belt with the threat of cuts in state aid looming.

Under Gov. Cuomo's plan, the district could lose between $100,000 and $149,000 during the current school year.

Superintendent Thomas E. Boedicker said the board is considering an immediate buying freeze on equipment, as well as some materials and supplies. Also, overtime expenses would be reduced and non-essential services curtailed.

Other economies include a cutback on hiring substitute teachers and a moratorium on district-funded field trips, conferences and travel after Jan. 1.
