    Lakewood Public and Nonpublic students head to Trenton to attend Lakewood School Funding Case (click to view)


    Resolution Regarding LEA/LAA Increase

     Whereas, the Lakewood Board of Education recognizes the chronic underfunding of the public school education; and

     Whereas, the Lakewood Board of Education sees the consequences of chronic underfunding – low salaries and poor staff morale. 

     Whereas, the Lakewood Board of Education has watched over 40 teachers resign since April, and approximately 365 staff members resign since 2014.  On behalf of our students and families, we cannot allow this crisis to continue.  We support our classroom teachers, aides, secretaries and all of our staff and demand the necessary funding for a meaningful teacher pay raise.

    Be it resolved, that the Lakewood Board of Education is in full support of our teachers, students and staff and are hereby, approving the following for all members of the LEA and LAA provided all contract language requested by the Administration and all other issues are resolved; including but not limited to, the understanding that there will be no change in the current formula for Chapter 78:

    2018-2019 – 3.2% raise (County Average, subject to verification)

    2019-2020 – 3.2% raise (County Average, subject to verification)

    2020-2021 – 3.2% raise (County Average, subject to verification)

    Approximate cost of raise for the 2018-2019 school year is $1,525,675 based on budgeted amounts for salaries.
