No Change in State Aid to Mahwah Schools
Township schools will receive over $2M, the same amount of aid they got for the 2012-13 school year
Mahwah schools will receive the same amount of state aid next school year as they did for the 2012-13 school year, the Christie Administration announced Thursday. According to an NJ Department of Education document, Mahwah is slated to receive $2,246,181 in state aid, the same amount it got last year.
According to a release from the Governor’s office, Chris Christie’s proposed budget includes nearly $9 billion in educational state aid, an increase of $97.3 million over 2013.
Mahwah residents will not be voting on the 2013-14 school budget, as the district switched last year to a new system in which any budget that comes in at or under the state-mandated 2% tax levy cap can be passed by the board of education without a popular vote.
The board is still expected to make a budget presentation this March, however.
