Taking its instruction from township committee, the Board of Education passed a new budget in Upper Township. Four part-time and one full-time job will be cut as a result, according to a report by the Press of Atlantic City. The district was looking for a 4.5 cent increase to the tax rate, but voters turned it down. The committee presented a plan to get the budget to a 2.5 cent increase, but it is up to the Board of Education to decide how the money is cut. Four teacher jobs were set to be cut prior to budget vote, these five jobs are on top of those cuts. The cuts include a librarian, aids, and a custodian.
