Senator Jennifer Beck (R-Monmouth) has introduced legislation that establishes a new category of school aid for military-connected children. This aid would go to school districts that educate children of active or retired military members housed at Department of Defense facilities.

“Recent comments by school districts in our region notwithstanding, this primarily is a funding issue for school districts that educate military-connected children,” said Beck. “This legislation ensures that adequate funding follows these children and supports the operation of the school district that educates them. This bill does not leave the children of our military servicemen and women as a political football.”

Under the bill, military-connected student aid would be provided to a school district in an amount equal to the number of military-connected students included in the school district’s projected resident enrollment multiplied by the district’s adequacy budget local share per pupil amount.

“Efforts by others to create a culture of divisiveness, pitting one town against another, are unconscionable,” Beck added. “We need a solution that protects our taxpayers, school districts and, most importantly, these children.”
