Batavia’s Notre Dame High School Loses Diocesan Subsidy
Written by Dan Fischer on June 27, 2018
Batavia’s Notre Dame High is losing 10 percent of its budget with the elimination of diocesan subsidy.
Notre Principal Wade Bianco told WKBW-TV that the annual Catholic Decease subsidy for Notre Dame is about $125,000.
Bianco said the school was informed of the cut in April.
He said the school will be forced to cut cafeteria and staff hours to make up the shortfall.
Notre Dame High School is an independent school and not owned by the Catholic Diocese of Western New York.
The school did however receive an annual subsidy which now, apparently, has been cut off.
One Catholic High School is Niagara Falls has announced that the loss of its subsidy will result in the immediate closure of the school.
