Interactive Map: State Aid to NJ Public Schools

The map shows the percent change in school aid from the state between 2009-10, the last budgeted amount under former Gov. Jon Corzine, and Gov. Chris Christie’s recommendation for next year.

The proposed New Jersey budget for the new fiscal year holds a modest, but welcome, increase in state aid to school districts. But it’s still not enough to make up for the large cuts made shortly after Gov. Chris Christie took office.

The map shows the change in state allocations to schools — equalization aid, adequacy aid, transportation aid, special education aid, security aid, adjustment aid, and choice aid.

Communities in green are slated to get more aid in the school year that begins July 1 than was originally proposed in 2009-2010 by Gov. Jon Corzine. All other communities will still be getting less.
