How much do schools get from the New York State Lottery?

Local News

The New York State Lottery constantly promotes that a lot of its proceeds go to education.

It’s very easy to find out how much each district gets online.

But once the more than $3 billion was divided up amongst all the state’s schools for the school year, it only ends up being a percentage of the district’s budgets.

Below is a sampling of the school district around our area. The numbers are for the 2018-2019 school year.

The numbers represent how much money each district gets from Lottery aid, and then we calculated what percentage that is from the total budget.

It ended up being 10% for the Syracuse City School District and below that for the others.
