School Funding and District Budget

Jersey City Public Schools

District Budget Information

On Tuesday, May 11, 2021, the Jersey City Board of Education approved its 2021-2022 Budget. We have posted the advertised budget for FY 21-22 here and the User-Friendly Version below.
Although the Jersey City Public Schools is often attacked for the level of state funding received by the school district, the fact is the district is actually underfunded. Please take the time to read the case study on Jersey City's School Aid by the Educational Law Center to better understand the challenges the District faces.
