School funding algorithm code

We're waiting for G.R. to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear New Jersey Department of Education,

This is a request for public records made under OPRA and the common law right of access. I am not required to fill out an official form. Please acknowledge receipt of this message.
Records requested:

I am requesting a copy of the "equalization aid school funding calculation algorithm code" referenced in Judge Mary C. Jacobson's court order of January 8th, 2021 that the Department is being required to release by January 11th, 2021 pursuant to this order.

The order was entered in the case Brick Township Board of Education et al. vs. New Jersey Department of Education and Jeanette Larkins, in her capacity as Records Custodian for the New Jersey Department of Education, Docket No. MER L 001567-20. New Jersey eCourts indicates that the order was filed in transaction #LCV202158458 .

The code of this algorithm is required to be released under OPRA pursuant to this order. Please provide me with a copy of the said algorithm code in plain text format.

Yours faithfully,

G.R.

OPRA Custodian,

Dear Ms. Larkins:

Please kindly advise as to the reason for the second extension.

This information should be readily available as the court ordered the department to release it by the aforementioned deadline mentioned in my request.

I do not consent to any further extension of the deadline for this request in light of Judge Jacobson’s order that required the release of the said formula in January.

Yours sincerely,

G.R.

OPRA Custodian,
