The information presented in columns 1 through 3 as well as the related descriptions of the per pupil cost calculations are contained in the 2011 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 2010-11 revised appropriations and 2011-12 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 Schools have formed
  • this 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 & other areas.
  • New projects for 2011-12 include sharing a math coach, gifted & talented
  • teachers and a shared Pre-school program merging the needs of PSD student
  • and their reg ed peers. In addition, professional development is almost
  • totally based on a tri-district initiative.
  • Newton also participates in several purchasing Co-ops (Middlesex, Morris
  • County, Hunterdon, Sussex County Transportation, Sussex County Ed Service
  • and ACES).
  • Insurance is purchased through HIF's and JIF's after evaluation of all
  • options; this year we plan to move to the SEHBP.
  • Newton shares fields with the municipality as well as purchase of fuel
  • and snow removel, usage of equipment and labor.
  • Susex 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.
