TRENTON — Nearly every school district in New Jersey would get an increase in state aid next year and none would see a reduction, according to figures released Thursday by the Murphy administration.

School budgets are the single greatest driver of New Jersey's property taxes, which are the highest in the nation.

Murphy's budget would boost state aid by 3.5 percent, or $283.5 million. The proposal also increases pre-school aid to existing programs by $33 million and add $25 million to expand pre-school for another 3,500 children.

Gov. Phil Murphy said his school aid proposal would be the first step in getting Trenton to fully fund the formula that the state developed in 2008.

“As an educator, I’m excited about this budget because it’s the first time in years that we’ve seen this level of emphasis on investing in education,” Acting Education Commissioner Lamont O. Repollet, the former Asbury Park schools superintendent, said in a prepared statement.

According to the proposal, 99 districts would get at least an additional 10 percent in regular state aid. Fifty would get at least $1 million more.

Districts that receive the lion's share of the aid remain the poorest school systems once referred to as the Abbott districts, after the state Supreme Court cases that mandated that the state provide them additional funds to match spending by the wealthiest districts.

Newark would get the most in combined pre-school and formula aid: $884 million, including a 5 percent increase amounting to $37.5 million.

In the charts below, you can see how much your school district would get. A searchable database is at the bottom of this story.
