Jackson Schools To Receive Additional $2.1 Million In State Funding

The N.J. Department of Education is slated to release more than $3.5 million in stabilization aid to five school districts in Ocean, Monmouth and Middlesex counties, Assemblymen Rob Clifton and Alex Sauickie announced Wednesday.

“While this stabilization aid is a huge win for us and a relief for our schools planning their budgets for the next year, students and schools deserve a more predictable and equitable funding formula. We aren’t done fighting,” Clifton (R-Monmouth) said.

Last year, Sauickie testified before the Assembly Budget Committee to describe the fiscal cliff schools are facing and the consequences of not reforming the law that dictates school aid.

Schools, teachers and students have never needed our support more than now as they strive to overcome unprecedented learning loss and crisis-level funding cuts. We celebrate the fact that our school districts can count on this aid, but we are worried about the future, because the same districts face cuts each year. We will continue to push for fairer and stable funding so that all children can receive a high-quality education in New Jersey,” Sauickie (R-Ocean) said.

The following school districts will receive stabilization aid for the 24-25 school year:

  • $2,137,833 for Jackson Township School District
  • $264,898 for Plumsted Township School District
  • $10,044 for Upper Freehold Regional School District
  • $411,082 for Manalapan-Englishtown Regional School District
  • $682,746 for Old Bridge Township School District

To help schools adjust to new funding levels as determined by the school funding measure enacted in 2018, this year’s budget is projected to include $20 million in stabilization aid, the same as last year.
