Grady pointed out that the board has a special education budget, but can't determine exactly what special education costs will be from one year to the next. The district is required to provide those Balenciaga Work Size services and can recoup part of the money spent over what was in the budget, through an excess costs grant from the federal government.
Nocera said the education board and the city will meet March 1 to work out a payback process.
The schools business office is contending that the city spent the funds without informing the school district, while the city is claiming that was within its rights to use the funds to offset shortfalls in the general fund.
McKeon suggested to other members that the board "determine quickly" how it is going to make up for the shortfall.
Grady said he also wanted the name of the person from the state who allegedly gave permission to the city to use the special education, the first he heard of it also.
Raczka also questioned a claim in the joint press release that the city had permission from someone from the state to spend money from the account.
McKeon referred to a letter Guess Gold Iphone Case
"I was led to believe, after continuing discussions, and so the public understands, the city took money that came to them. They spent it. They were short. They were expending it and the federal (stimulus) dollars dried up," Grady said, who became visibly incensed as discussions went on.
CORRECTION: A quote by Ed McKeon has been changed after he contacted the Press and said he had been misquoted. The original quote said McKeon believed the city was responsible for the $1 million discrepancy. What he actually said was that the Board of Education is responsible and spent money it knew it didn't have.
that was included in a packet of emails and other communications chronicling the dispute between the city and education department regarding the use of the funds. He offered that the person from the state who drafted the letter to the city was Brian Mahoney, chief financial officer of the state Division of Finance and Internal Operations. Mahoney notes in the letter that the city must turn over the funds to the school board if there is a shortfall of special education appropriations in the education budget.
Board member Theodore Raczka said he was unconcerned where the money comes from as long as it does not impact class size.
didn't have, and as a result of that we now owe the money, and it is not the city who owes the money," Board of Education member Ed McKeon said. "I want to make it clear as a member of the Budget Committee who was convinced that there was some culpability on the city's part, that I don't believe there is culpability and we have to figure out a way to come up with money to pay it back."
"There must be someone at the state who signed their name," he said Tuesday. "Up until today, I never heard of that."

"The federal government, through the state, sends us 40 percent of our costs not all," he said. "The city was short so they used it. We claimed it on our audit and they claimed it on theirs and didn't tell us. The city spent it. Now we're supposed to pay it back? We're supposed to take it out of our money?"
"At Thursday's meeting all this was worked out and apparently Friday's meeting it was showtime. None of these things were discussed Friday. There were no discussions on who was going to take responsibility. None," he said before adding, "There ought to be more transparency."
Schools Business Manager Nancy Haynes said in several of the emails included in the packet as well as verbally at meetings that there was a shortfall in special education grants.
A recent audit of school and city finances revealed that a shared account that held a special education grant was overspent by approximately $1 million.
Raczka also referred to a December 2010 settlement agreement between the city and school board regarding the handling of finances. A court order says the city should refer it to Judge Holzberg."

"There should be no more than 22 in a class and we'll work out a protocol to avoid that," he said.
