The Campaign for Fiscal Equity is appealing to the state's highest court to get city schools the money they are owed from the state.

The CFE filed with the court of appeals in hopes of bringing a final legal resolution to the case.

Last month, the Appellate Court ordered the state to budget at least $4.7 billion in additional operating aid and 9.2 billion in capital funding for city schools by the April 1 budget deadline.

While the budget included the full amount of capital funding, the city's operating funds only increased by about $400 million.

CFE asked the Court to hold oral arguments on the issue within 30 days and issue a ruling by June. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
