Senator Tom Kean, Jr., Assemblyman Jon Bramnick, and Assemblywoman Nancy Munoz are pleased to announce that local school districts will receive increased school aid for the 2011-2012 school year.

The 21st District legislators worked closely with the Christie Administration in an effort to gain a fairer share of school aid dollars in the final state budget signed by the Governor.

School children and property taxpayers are the primary beneficiaries of the Governors decision to dedicate additional state revenue to school aid for suburban communities, said Senator Kean. By making tough choices and using an unexpected bump in state revenues wisely, we were able not only to increase aid over last year, but to double the rate of increase that was originally proposed in March.

Bramnick added, “Many of the highest ranked schools in the state are in District 21. I am pleased that the Governor has made tough choices that will increase state school aid and allow our public schools to continue to set the standard.”

“I am certainly pleased that children in our school districts will benefit from the increased educational funding that is part of the fiscal 2012 budget, Munoz said. One of our top priorities is investing in our youth and providing them with necessary resources to prepare them for the future. The additional funding is welcome news and reaffirms our commitment to provide a quality education.”
