But despite the possible financial hardships, he and the district are dedicated to being there for students. “It’s all on the table when it comes to these types of reductions potentially, ” he said. To view the a statement by Van Fossen to the MECSD community, click here. “We would be looking at $5.6 million state aid loss for that period of time,” Van Fossen said. “You could argue it’s on the brink of significant devastation if we don’t figure out how to fund schools and try to mitigate this current issue that we are facing right now.” The district currently has reserve funds to use for the next month and a half, and Van Fossen is closely monitoring decisions made in congress to help public schools across the country who face a similar crisis. Van Fossen says the district relies on state aid to make up for half of its budget, and if the reduction becomes a reality, activities like extracurriculars, elective programming and even athletics could be some elements to go. ENDWELL (WBNG) — The Maine-Endwell Central School District could be facing financial devastation as the school may lose out on state funding this year.center_img Governor Andrew Cuomo announced back in March that because of the economic stress put on the state by the coronavirus pandemic, schools could see their state aid cut by 20 percent. “The problem is that it’s not just Maine-Endwell,’ Van Fossen said. “It’s 700 school districts across the state that are looking at the same issue.” While nothing is confirmed as of Aug. 31, MECSD says this possible reduction could mean quite the significant impact for the 2020-21 school year. “If we’re looking at what’s good for society, what’s good for kids, you need a public education system,” Van Fossen said. “Our goal will be to try and continue to provide the best education you can.” “I don’t want to be dramatic, but to use the word ‘catastrophic,’ I’m not saying that lightly,” said superintendent Jason Van Fossen.last_img read more

first_imgOther Hall of Famers who played significant stretches with the Angels – most notably Nolan Ryan and Rod Carew – are shown on their Hall of Fame plaques wearing other caps.The Hall of Fame curators maintain final approval over which cap a player wears, but they generally go with the player’s preference if it’s one of the logical choices.“This is such a proud and special day for Vladimir Guerrero, his family, his countrymen in the Dominican Republic and of course all Angels fans,” Angels owner Arte Moreno said in a statement released by the club. “His election into the Hall of Fame is so meaningful and impactful for so many. We are proud and privileged that he becomes the first player enshrined in Cooperstown wearing the Angels logo. He represented four quality organizations during his playing career and his induction is special for each.”Guerrero said on a conference call Wednesday night that he was “quite thankful to Montreal, to the Expos.”“That’s a team that, after some teams overlooked me in the Dominican Republic, gave me the opportunity to break into professional baseball,” he said. “Always thankful for how I was treated in Canada.”On Thursday, Guerrero credited former Expos manager Felipe Alou for bringing him along as a major league player.“He gave me the opportunity to be an every day player and even though I was a rookie, he was very patient explaining things to me and continued to put my name in the lineup,” explained Guerrero, who shared the dais with Chipper Jones, Jim Thome and Trevor Hoffman, who also were elected to the Hall on Wednesday.Guerrero frequently referenced his mother, who was at Thursday’s press conference in New York and was with him when he received the news of his induction the night before.“There was joy all over the house,” said Guerrero, who retired after the 2011 season with 449 career home runs, 1,496 RBIs and a .318 career batting average. He is the third Dominican to be named to Cooperstown, behind pitchers Juan Marichal and Pedro Martinez.“I will be forever thankful for this day. It is a beautiful moment,” he said. Guerrero said the choice was difficult, apparently with the Angels’ frequent playoff appearances having an impact on his decision.“I toiled over this for a long time,” Guerrero said, with Angels broadcaster Jose Mota acting as his interpreter. “Canadian people mean a whole lot to me. Picking the Angels means a lot because of what it represents, with all the winning.”Guerrero never played in a playoff game for the Expos, for whom he was a four-time All-Star. With the Angels, Guerrero made the postseason in five of six seasons, reaching the ALCS in 2005 and 2009. He also won the American League MVP award in 2004 when he batted .337 with 39 home runs and 126 RBI.Guerrero also had short stints with the Texas Rangers – whom he thanked for getting him to his only World Series, in 2010 – and the Baltimore Orioles.The Angels, who played their first season in 1961, are baseball’s oldest franchise not represented by a player in Cooperstown. The others are the Colorado Rockies, Miami Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays, expansion teams created since 1993. There also no players depicted wearing a Nationals cap, although there are three (Gary Carter, Andre Dawson and Tim Raines) who represent the franchise’s origin in Montreal. They began playing in Washington in 2005. The Angels will finally be represented on a plaque in the Baseball Hall of Fame.Vladimir Guerrero announced Thursday he has chosen to be depicted with an Angels cap on his Hall of Fame plaque.Guerrero chose the Angels over the Montreal Expos – who have since become the Washington Nationals. Guerrero, who was elected to the Hall on Wednesday, spent the first eight seasons of his career with the Expos, followed by six with the Angels.Although his numbers were slightly better, in quality and quantity, with the Expos, he won an MVP and went to the playoffs five times with the Angels.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
