SFY 2019 School Aid Numbers Released
The State Department of Education (NJDOE) has released the final school aid numbers, which can be accessed from the Department’s website at: https://www.nj.gov/education/stateaid/1819/
School districts receiving increased aid have the option to reduce their school tax levy. The districts have also been asked to notify their municipal finance officers, tax collectors, and county tax administrators if the levy will be reduced.
The Division of Local Government Services (DLGS) is currently in the process of certifying municipal budgets for those whose respective school districts did not
receive additional school aid.
The DLGS is sending out a memo containing instructions for municipalities. You can also download the memo from the League’s website. Contact:
