PATERSON, NJ - Calling it “important tax relief”, a statement by the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders announced that Passaic County Technical Institute (PCTI) is lowering its tuition by $250 per student for the 2020-2021 school year.
“The relief offered by lowering tuition is in addition to another budget cycle with no increase in the tax levy. Passaic County is continuing our record of proven financial stability and fiscal responsibility,” Freeholder Director Cassandra “Sandi” Lazzara said.
The reduction, county officials said, offers a total savings of just over $1 million and brings the tuition rate for the upcoming school year to $11,364. With 1,770 Paterson students enrolled at PCTI the savings amount to a total of $442,500 locally.
Saying that he and his colleagues are “proud of PCTI’s amazing educational programs, services, college acceptance rates, and importantly, the ability to deliver quality education in a fiscally responsible way,” Deputy Freeholder Director Pasquale “Pat” Lepore added that “PCTI has been a tremendous addition to our county and our community.”
