WOODBURY - Poor school districts could lose millions of dollars if big federal cuts kick in Friday, according to Newsday.

Officials say districts that rely on aid from the No Child Left Behind and Americans with Disabilities acts would be hit the hardest.

The cuts could amount to larger class sizes or elimination of some elective courses.

Officials say New York's colleges could also lose millions.
