CHEERS - To saving money. The New York State Association of School Business Officials pointed out the state Legislature passed several cost-saving and mandate-relief measures. The four bills include a Board of Cooperative Educational Services property lease extender that allows longer leases of 20 years so BOCES can get better terms from landlords; the repeal of a requirement for annual visual inspection of school buildings, saving an average of $2,000 per school district; legislation that allows the Department of Motor Vehicles to share fingerprints and background checks of prospective bus drivers to avoid duplicative efforts; and a measure that allows schools to post bids on a state procurement website accessible to vendors from around the state. These measures may not produce a major savings, but they are a good start.
