The information presented in columns 1 through 3 as well as the related descriptions of the per pupil cost calculations are contained in the 2012 Taxpayers Guide to Education Spending (formerly Comparative Spending Guide) and can be found on the Department of Education's Internet address: http://www.state.nj.us/education under Finance. This publication is available in the board office and public libraries. The same calculations were performed using the 2011-12 revised appropriations and 2012-13 budgeted appropriations presented in this advertised budget. Total Comparative Per Pupil Cost is defined as current expense exclusive of tuition expenditures, transportation, residential costs, and judgments against the school district. For all years, it also includes the restricted entitlement aids. With the exception of Total Equipment Cost, each of the other per pupil cost calculations presented is a component of the total comparative per pupil cost, although all components are not shown.

 

Shared Services
  • Tri-District Consortium: Newton, Green and Andover School districts have
  • formed an organization which serves as a state model for shared services.
  • The group shares personnel (curriculum, ABA, and OT). Joint RFP's have
  • had the effect of lowering each districts costs in OT, PT, ABA and other
  • areas. The shared pre-school/psd program began in September 2011 and is
  • saving money for each district while providing a better service than
  • could prviously be offered at the smaller scale programs in each school.
  • Professional development days and programs are shared, enabling a wider
  • selection of opportunities and shared cost for higher priced speakers.
  • Newton also participates in several purchasing Co-ops (Middlesex, Morris
  • County, Ed Data, ACES, Sussex County Ed Services, Sussex County
  • Transportation, Hunterdon Ed Services).
  • Insurance is purchased through JIF's after evaluation of all options. A
  • move to the SEHBP in July 2011 generated a significant savings.
  • Newton shares fields, snow removal, equipment and labor with the
  • municipality. We also jointly purchase fuel for vehicles.
  • Sussex County Technical School is providing bus maintenance through an
  • Interlocal Agreement.
  • We continue to seek the sharing of services that will enhance education
  • and/or generate savings.
