Chancellor Banks finally moving ahead with NYC school budget task force

After nearly two months, Schools Chancellor David Banks is moving forward on a pledge to create a budget task force, the Department of Education said Saturday.

Banks has not yet set up the “team” he promised to address complaints about the “Fair Student Funding” formula, which largely determines how much money schools get.
“I’m prepared by next week to start to organize and plan to fix this mess,” he declared at a public meeting on May 18.

On Saturday the DOE told the Post, “We will soon begin inviting participants and start meeting in the next several weeks.”
The group will include parents, Panel for Educational Policy members, an industry expert, DOE staff, and community volunteers, the department said.

Meanwhile, Gale Brewer, Upper West Side City Councilmember and chair of the Oversight and Investigations committee, said she wants to figure out how to restore $215 million in DOE funding cuts proposed by Mayor Adams and adopted by the City Council.
