The proposed FY2022 budget furthers the Governor’s historic commitment to education by increasing formula aid by $578 million. Over the last four years, direct pre-K through grade 12 spending statewide has increased by nearly $1.5 billion, putting New Jersey on the path to fully funding the constitutional school funding formula.
This afternoon, Gov. Phil Murphy and Acting Commissioner of Education Angelica Allen-McMillan announced that the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) will apply for a waiver from this spring’s federally mandated standardized testing.
Several members are honored each year by NJASA for their outstanding service to education, to NJASA, and for their dynamic leadership and their service to children and youth of New Jersey. This is the highest honor ever conferred upon its members. Nominate your nominee by March 24.
“One of the factors that most people don’t understand is the lack of available staff to conduct schooling because of how COVID-19 has impacted families and individual staff members across the state,” Richard Bozza, executive director of the New Jersey Association of School Administrators, said.
