Senate Republican Leader Tom Kean (R- Union) announced there is a school aid calculator (https://www.senatenj.com/school-aid) on the Senate Republican website to help parents, teachers and administrators learn how much additional funding their school district is receiving for the 2011-2012 school year.

This year, Senate Republicans worked with Governor Christie to increase state aid to all school districts. The budget, signed by Governor Christie and sustained by Senate Republicans, increases overall aid to schools by $850 million, including $318 million for suburban and rural districts.

“School children and property taxpayers are the primary beneficiaries of the Governor’s 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. This additional aid will secure the best available education for our students in an affordable manner for every community.”
