Brick Township's Board of Education is set to introduce its spending plan for the 2014-15 school year Thursday night.

The $143,415,057 budget will be supported by a $97,537,041 tax levy. The levy will remain nearly the same as in the current school year. The 2013-14 levy is $97,160,762.

The budget can change between its introduction, scheduled for a vote Thursday night, and its adoption after a public hearing, which is scheduled for April 24.

Patch will have more details on the budget after tonight's meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. at Brick Township High School.

The only way to get meaningful properrty tax reform is by making all schools private. This would solve many of the problems faced by the current system. As a government entity (public schools) there is no competition, or incentive to excel in anything other than increasing taxes. Private schools can only continue operations because they have proven to be cost effective in delivering a quality education.

There are some questionable spending practices going on since this new super took control of the district. He has been pressuring older employees out and bringing in people he has known and worked with, like Dr. Morgan and his wife, at very inflated salaries. Those inflated salaries don't do a single thing to help the KIDS IN OUR CLASSROOMS. Maybe it's time to start shopping for a new super. He couldn't even deal with the mold problem in 1 of the schools properly.

Though i would commend the current board for holding the budget "almost" flat as far as spending is concerned. Now let's see what happens with the other side of our tax bills come August..................... Whether we get aid from FEMA like last year to balance the books. Brick and Toms River received alot of help due to Sandy from all the lost ratables.
