‘Is school funding reform possible?’

MAPLEWOOD, NJ — On Thursday, July 21, at 7:30 p.m., in DeHart Community Center, 120 Burnett Ave. in Maplewood, Assemblywoman Mila Jasey’s legislative director, Lindy Wilson, will present different funding proposals and discuss how they impact the South Orange-Maplewood School District.

The school district gets only about half of the state aid it should get, according to the release. Both Gov. Chris Christie’s Fairness Formula and N.J. Senate President Stephen Sweeney’s School Funding Proposal will help Maplewood’s taxpayers. Wilson will address the benefits of each, what municipalities will lose state aid if Maplewood gets more and whether it is realistic to expect a change in school funding

Come on out to this Hilton Neighborhood Association meeting to hear how these plans could impact your taxes and what you can do to advocate for change. All HNA meetings are free and open to the public. Refreshments are served.For further information, contact cabms@aol.com or 973-761-4672.
