Dear Parents & Guardians of the Manville Public School District,
Recent tax-bills to the Manville residents have been higher than in past years. As a school district, we think it important to share with you about our district budget along with the very positive impact that your tax dollars have upon the children of Manville. We hope that the information you find below will be both helpful and informative.
Anne R. Facendo, Superintendent
Manville Public School District
Did you know?
- Manville Public School District has faithfully maintained a state-mandated 2% budget cap since initial steep cuts of $1.3 Million dollars were made to Manville’s school funding back in in 2010 by the Christie Administration.
- The trend of under-funding by the State of NJ to the Manville Public School District has continued for six (6) long, consecutive years. As of 2016, and Manville is currently listed in the top 10 most underfunded school systems in the State of NJ.
- The Manville School Administration and Board, during the Budgeting Cycle for FY 2017 made the tough decision to used banked cap (exceeding the 2% cap for the first time since 2010).
- Not using banked cap would have forced deep cuts to personnel and programs within our school district.
- Such cuts would have had a negative impact on the students we serve and we stand by our decision in this regard.
- The tax increase for school taxes on a house assessed at $300,000 increased by $224 for 2016-2017. This amounts to a total of $18.66 per month or $4.67 per week.
