Wall School District to get small increase in state aid


WALL TOWNSHIP — The Wall Township School District will receive a modest increase in state aid for next year’s budget, according to figures released last week by the New Jersey Department of Education. Wall public schools are slated to receive $4,030,939, an increase of $156,806.

At a budget workshop on Tuesday, March 12, board of education members debated how to use the increase in state aid, and eventually settled on using it for facilities maintenance and repairs for the 2019-2020 school year.

Among the other options discussed were putting the $156,806 toward decreasing the proposed tax levy or toward teachers’ salaries.

No formal action was taken at the workshop.
