Niagara-Wheatfield reinstates extracurriculars
Wed, Oct 1st 2014 10:20 pm
The Niagara-Wheatfield School Board voted Wednesday to reinstate the athletic, music, theater and other extracurricular activities that were cut from the 2014-15 budget earlier this year. The sudden vote was the result of a report provided by Superintendent Lynn Marie Fusco, which revealed an unanticipated source of funding available to support the programs.

Fusco said that, as a result of 11 retirements and resignations processed after the budget was put into place, the district had in excess of $158,000, originally slated for those employees' salaries, available for use. Fusco said reinstating the extracurriculars would cost about $111,000, leaving just under $50,000 available for reserve.
