The Record--New Jersey schools stuck in limbo: Districts unsure whether they'll gain or lose funding

For the second year in a row, competing visions over how to fund public education has left New Jersey’s roughly 600 school districts in limbo as they face crucial May deadlines to finalize their budgets, set tax bills and make hiring decisions for the coming school year.

Many districts stand to gain or lose money — in some cases, millions of dollars — compared with preliminary aid figures the state released in March. But how they fare depends on the outcome of negotiations between Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy and lawmakers, which are unlikely to conclude before the deadlines pass.
