Opportunities for School District Savings in Nassau County

Through the impetus of County Executive Tom Suozzi, Nassau County set out to develop an action plan aimed at reducing the growth of property taxes. What distinguished this effort was the County’s focus on units of local government over which it had no direct control. Using a collaborative process and employing a group of consulting organizations (including CGR), Nassau County studied special districts, libraries, parks, and school districts. CGR supported Nassau’s work with local school districts, identifying ways that school districts could collaborate with each other and other local governments (including the County) to reduce duplication, improve service quality and cut the cost of local government.
