Middletown Township (Monmouth) The resolution proposes additional language in NJSBA Manual of and Policies on Education which states that NJSBA believes it is detrimental to students, school programs, and local taxpayers to have the state reduce projected aid to school districts after school budgets have been adopted.
Bloomfield (Essex) The resolution requests that the NJ State Legislature enact legislation that would force the state to fully-fund special education costs, including Extraordinary Aid Costs and transportation costs, and limit the increases that providers can charge to the same 2 percent cap imposed on school districts, and that special services funding supplied by the state follows the child.
Freehold Borough (Monmouth) The resolution proposes additional language in NJSBA Manual of Positions and Policies on Education that NJSBA believes in the fair and equitable distribution of state school aid to member districts and providing all students in New Jersey with a thorough and efficient education.
