School districts in New York state stand to lose $164 million in federal funding in the 2013-14 school year if Washington doesn’t avoid the “fiscal cliff” by Jan. 2.

An analysis by the New York State School Boards Association released Tuesday shows districts would lose an average of $243,000 earmarked largely for educational programs serving students with disabilities and students living in poverty.
