|Each year school districts, including Chenango Forks, face costs associated with unfunded state and federal mandates.
Unfunded mandates are regulations or conditions that require school districts and government to perform certain tasks for which they are not reimbursed. It becomes the school district's responsibility to adhere to the mandates AND absorb the cost.
School district officials estimate that unfunded mandates make up about 19% of a school district budget.
