Jefferson Township Public Schools
Tuesday, October 2, 2018
The Jefferson Township Public Schools’ recent strategic planning process identified the need for improvements and upgrades among the district’s facilities to ensure the continued health and safety of current and future students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
On October 2, 2018, the Jefferson Township Public Schools Board of Education will ask the community to vote on a $9.935 million referendum that is a no-frills renovation and construction project. The proposed referendum would fund improvements necessary for the district to provide safe and accessible facilities as it promotes the highest standards of academic excellence as well as fostering a nurturing environment and strong school spirit - known throughout our small, close-knit community as Falcon Pride!
New Jersey state aid is available for a portion of the referendum projects, which would reduce the district’s overall costs. State aid is not available for capital improvement projects completed within the annual budget; it is only available if voters approve the referendum.
An approved referendum would be an investment in the future of the community’s students and in Jefferson Township. Good schools, like Jefferson Township Public Schools, help build strong communities and bolster real estate values.
