The future is getting grimmer and grimmer for school districts here in Western New York and across the state.
The New York State Council of School Superintendents surveyed district leaders around the state and found that four in ten think their district will be out of money in four years.
Another one in ten says that will happen in just two years.
More than 75 percent of them think their district won't be able to fund all required education and student services within four years.
Sixty percent blame the state's recent property tax cap for forcing greater cuts to programs. But almost the same amount say it helped them negotiate cost savings with their teacher's union.
