New Jersey Budget Gives Jackson Extra $2.5 Million, But Gains No Support From Elected Officials

The New Jersey Fiscal Year 2025 State Budget includes a one-time infusion of $2.5 million to the Jackson School District, somewhat alleviating the crushing financial crunch local officials are contending with.

The $2.5 million comes specifically in response to complaints that some Jackson students are receiving their education in trailers. These funds can be used by the Jackson School District for capital improvements that will allow those students to move into structures more conducive for learning.

The cash infusion was not enough, however, for the budget to win approval from Jackson’s state representatives. Assemblymen Alex Sauickie and Robert Clifton, as well as Senator Owen Henry, all voted against it.
