ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. – A lawsuit that claims several school districts throughout the state are underfunded, including Newburgh and Port Jervis is now being heard by the Supreme Court Appellate Division, according to the Times Herald-Record.

The Appellate Division judges will decide whether or not to overturn a decision made at the County Court level last year to dismiss the suit  that alleges these districts who, all have large populations of low income, immigrant and special needs students, have been underfunded by the state since 2006, the Record said.

Judges heard arguments from the schools participating in the suit on Sept. 5, the Record said.
