Tonight the Jersey City Board of Education passed a fully funded budget for 2021-2022, replacing lost state aid with a major increase in the local tax levy.
Find here a detailed view of the Jersey City Public School District Budget.
And find here a quick view of the state aid and local tax levy changes over a three year period.
The district’s adequacy budget will be fully funded for at least one year, but the district will face the same challenge again next year as the state continues to decrease its aid to Jersey City, effectively forcing the local community to address the funding need using its own tax base.

I believe that the High Rise buildings should be paying taxes too. They collect more rent than home owners due. Why do they get a 20 to 30 tax break? Home owners never get a tax break???????? We have to provide every income in order to get tax decrease when we retired.?????????????????????
