The Piscataway Board of Education voted unanimously to return $792,778 to local taxpayers, the maximum amount allowable by law. The tax relief means that the average homeowner will have the school portion of their tax bill reduced by $35 for the coming year.

This is the second consecutive year that the Piscataway Board has returned state aid to taxpayers. Last year, the Board returned $995,236 to the taxpayers, bringing the two-year total amount returned to $1,788,014.   

The additional funding is the result of increased state aid from the State for the 2018-19 school year. The Piscataway District also received $1,029,504 in additional state aid that must be earmarked for educational programs. The Board allocated these funds towards student technology, facility improvements, transportation, and instructional salaries.
