School State Aid Up in Fort Lee
Bergen districts set to receive nearly $3 million more in funding over last year, Christie Administration says.
State aid to Fort Lee's public school district will increase, according to Department of Education figures released Thursday.
Fort Lee is set to receive $1,968,914, an increase of $22,465 over the amount in funding it received last year.
Bergen County districts would get nearly $3 million more in state funding than last year, officials announced. Governor Christie's proposed 2014 budget includes almost $9 billion in school aid.
“Throughout my time in office I have continuously argued that in order to grow New Jersey’s economy we must invest in education, and my proposed budget is a reflection of my commitment to our educational system and communities in Bergen County and across the state," Christie said in a statement.
