What the Suozzi report does address is the merging of school districts. Suozzi recommends forced merger of school districts with fewer than 1000 students. Niagara County has none.
But the Suozzi Commission also favors giving the State Education Department the power to require mergers of districts under 2000. According to these 2006-07 enrollment figures from SED, 4 of 10 of Niagara's districts fit that bill: Barker, Newfane, Roy Hart & Wilson. Since it's safe to assume that each of their superintendent's compensation packages approach $200,000 per year, we're talking about saving the taxpayers of Niagara County millions of dollars over the life of these superintendents current contracts by consolidating districts and eliminating the duplication.
There are currently over 700 school districts in the state.
