How much NJ schools actually spend on teaching students: A rank of all districts

in Toms River News

TRENTON – Total spending per student in New Jersey’s public schools increased 7.1% during the 2020-21 school year, according to the annual spending report published by the state.

The statewide average was $24,543.

That measurement is more than the budgetary cost per pupil that districts advertise when publishing their user-friendly budget each spring. The budgetary total excludes costs that are not directly comparable between districts such as transportation, debt for school construction and tuition payments for out-of-district programs.
