    BUDGET OVERVIEW & STATE AID

    Haddon Township School District plans to leverage the funding mechanism of a bond referendum because of the availability of state debt service aid with voter approval.

    The total estimate of costs submitted to NJDOE for the district’s projects is $30,584,288. Based upon the received NJDOE approvals, $23,293,172 of this cost was determined to be eligible for State share funding at 40% totaling $9,317,268. The portion deemed ineligible for State share funding is $7,291,116 of proposed project costs and includes items not directly related to instructional programs. Taxpayers across the state pay into the revenue that funds school construction projects, but districts only benefit when local voters approve a bond referendum.

    Bond funding also lets the district complete projects quickly and efficiently and pay for them over time. By financing moderate projects with the advantage of state aid, the district can invest in continuous improvements as overall debt service holds fairly steady. The owner of a home assessed at Haddon Township’s average of $231,245 can expect to pay $263 more per year if the referendum passes.
