School Funding Roundtable to be held on Monday

Dr. Frank A. Calabria Education Center

PARSIPPANY — Senate President Steve Sweeney and Senator Joseph Pennacchio will join with local officials, educators, advocates and parents in a community forum in Parsippany to discuss the importance of acting to reform the state’s school funding practices, including full funding of the School Funding Reform Act, the law that was intended to distribute state aid fairly and equitably but has not been fully funded and has been hobbled by add-on provisions.

Senator Joe Pennacchio

With thirteen school districts in Morris County funded under 50 percent of the formula, the county has some of the lowest funded districts by percentage in the state.

With the growth cap and adjustment aid removed and SFRA and Extraordinary Special Education Aid fully funded, Morris County schools stand to gain $57 million.

The Parsippany SFRA Fair Funding Roundtable will be held on Monday, April 17, at 11:00 a.m. in Parsippany Town Hall, 1001 Parsippany Boulevard.
