There’s a kerfuffle in these parts about a private religious school moving into town. There’s a lot more anger about the development in general floating in the background, so it can be hard to discern which complaints have a solid (or potentially solid) foundation.
So assuming for the moment that there are no other complaints, is it possible that building a private school in a town could impact the public school’s budget? For example, could there be certain provisions of the ADA or other act that requires the town to provide xyz services to all schools, public and private? Or is this a likely case of overreaction on the town’s part?
Oh, since jurisdiction is key to most questions like this, it’s in semi-rural New York (but that shouldn’t preclude more general answers).
