The Board of Education on March 13, 2018 adopted a Resolution calling for New Jersey Commissioner of Education Dr. Lamont Repollet and New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy either to put forth a spending plan that fully funds the School Funding Reform Act (SFRA) or, in the event the SFRA cannot be fully funded, make sure the funds available for state aid to schools be fairly and proportionally divided per the SFRA. The resolution further resolved that if full redistribution is not possible this year, that sufficient additional monies be allocated to Underadequacy Aid to close the adequacy gap. A copy of the resolution has been present to the New Jersey Commissioner of Education, the Governor of New Jersey, the State Senator and the State Assemblypersons from Legislative District 6, and the Mayor and Council President of Cherry Hill.
