Update- State Aid Payment Schedules, USDA Food Service Waivers & Salary Survey

Tuesday, September 1, 2020  

State Aid Notices - State Aid Payment Notices were posted in the DOE Homeroom.   We have been made aware that Choice Aid is not included in these payment schedules.   The Department of Education has confirmed that districts will receive their Choice Aid.  Due to the delay of the September choice aid payments their software would not allow an entry in that field which would reflect their actual planned payment schedule.  The September 22nd regular aid payment will be paid on or about October 8th along with the normal October payments.  The Choice Aid payments will commence for the year in October.  Specifics on the distribution of the choice payments will be clarified in the near future.  Broadcast - State Aid Payments 


US Department of Agriculture Waiver-  The USDA  announced yesterday that they will be extending the SSO and SSFP programs that will allow districts that participate in the NSLP to serve meals at no charge.  This waiver will be in effect until federal funding for the program has been depleted.  At the current time they anticipate a December 31st expiration date.  The NJ Department of Agriculture has indicated they will issue further guidance as they receive details.   Click Here for USDA Announcement
