Ms. Mattia,

 

Attached please find records responsive to parts 1-4 of your request. The
Department of Education does not make or maintain the requested records
for 2011-12.  Accordingly, this part of the request is denied.

 

Attached please find records responsive to part five of your request. As a
courtesy, although it is outside the scope of your request, we are also
providing a table showing the process for the 2020-2021 school year.

 

Regarding part six of your request, the statute in question,
N.J.S.A.18A:7F-53, specifies that equalization aid will be calculated in a
manner such that it is not less than zero for any district. The program
that performs this calculation does not retain or output information
regarding what equalization aid would have been for a district if it were
allowed to be less than zero. As such, the Department does not make or
maintain records responsive to this part of your request. Accordingly,
this part of the request is denied.

 

Due to the number and size of files, which exceed the Department of
Education’s email system limitations, records responsive to part 7 of your
request for years 2011-20 will be provided through another file sharing
system that we are currently using.

 

Shortly, you should be receiving another email that will include a
username and password. Please follow the instructions in that email to
access the records.

 

If you cannot download the records for any reason, please let me know by
replying to this message.

 

Please download the files to your computer immediately. The contents of
the email will expire after 15 days.  

 

Records responsive to part 7 of your request for years FY09 and FY10 can
be found on our website in the [1]SFRA Archives.

 

A receipt indicating that your request has been filled and closed is also
attached.
