ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York state education officials say they inadvertently shortchanged most school districts when distributing federal funding for teacher training last year, and gave charter schools more than their share.

To fix the $12 million error, the state Education Department will reduce Title IIA funding for overpaid districts for the next few years. All but a handful of underfunded districts will get all of what they are owed this school year — their 2018-19 allotment plus up to $130,000 from last year.

The state will make up the shortfall for Buffalo, Rochester, East Ramapo and Syracuse over two years, and for New York City over four years. New York City schools were shorted about $7 million.

The state blames a calculation error when implementing the funding formula.
