From the Audio Description: "In a new episode of Policy Outsider, guest Anita Murphy, district superintendent at Capital Region BOCES [Boards of Cooperative Educational Services], discusses how school districts and BOCES are sharing resources and working together to continue supporting students through new challenges imposed by the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis and planning for a variety of budget and instructional uncertainties in the coming academic year. New York State is anticipating a $13.3 billion loss in tax revenue in the economic wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a new round of federal aid for state and local governments is being negotiated in Congress, much uncertainty still remains, and school administrators are preparing for a wide range of budget cuts. School districts that are more reliant on state aid, such as rural districts and poorer urban districts, are preparing for particularly challenging budgets."
