JC BOE Replaces Lost State Aid with an Increase in the Local Tax Levy, Passing 2021-2022 Budget

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.
