Glassboro School District to Receive More Than $1.7 Million in Emergency State Aid
GLASSBORO--- Glassboro School District will receive more than $1.7 Million in Emergency State Aid thanks to the NJ Department of Education’s review and approval of its 2018-2019 Emergency State Aid Application. NJ Commissioner of Education Lamont O. Repollet, Ed.D. notified Glassboro School District Superintendent Mark Silverstein on October 26.
Dr. Silverstein deemed it “a great day for Glassboro Schools” in his announcement to staff and parents the next day.
He said, “This will allow us to begin hiring for positions that had been postponed in the summer. This approval will also mitigate the impact going forward in future years if our enrollments do not increase.”
The approved amount represents just over 95% of the amount that the district requested in its 2018-2019 Emergency State Aid Application. Glassboro School District made that application after the state initially announced a $1.8+ State Aid reduction for Glassboro in July.
In sharing the announcement, the superintendent thanked parents for their support and patience during the process. He also thanked the commissioner, State Senate President Steve Sweeney, Glassboro School District staff and the Board of Education.
