Board of Education President's Message

The Edison Board of Education would like to draw your attention to a critical issue facing our town – funding for our schools.  Nearly 16,000 students attend our schools every day, making Edison the fourth largest school district in the state.  However, in terms of funding, Edison is among districts receiving the lowest fraction of our fair share – 37.8% of our SFRA entitlement.  According to the SFRA formula, Edison should have received $37,000,000 for the 2016-17 School Year.  The District was given $14,000,000 in state aid, thereby depriving our students and taxpayers of $23,000,000. (Click here to read the complete article.)
