BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Bridgewater-Raritan Regional School District will not be losing any of its state aid this year – but the Somerset County Vocational & Technical High School will be losing a marginal amount.
The state has released its revised numbers regarding state aid to all districts in New Jersey. Bridgewater-Raritan was expecting to receive $10,035,953 in state aid for the 2018-2019 school year, and that number is remaining unchanged.
This was a 5 percent increase over the state aid received for the 2017-2018 school year.
The Somerset County Vo-Tech, in Bridgewater, will see a 7 percent decrease in its state aid for the 2018-2019 school year, from an expected $1,543,011 to $1,428,562. This revised number is actually the same amount of aid the Vo-Tech received for the 2017-2018 school year.
These revised numbers were released by Gov. Phil Murphy July 13. They represent updated figures on a distribution of $8.5 billion in state aid for school districts as outlined in the state's budget.
