That’s the borough district and others learn just how much state money is coming their way, and thus, whether they can count on taxes going up, down or sideways.
But it’s also the day that borough Superintendent Laura Morana expects to hear whether she can move ahead with plans to expand Red Banks full-day preschool program.
A program for 3-year-olds started in September with one class of 15 children. Because of space constraints at the primary school, the preschool class is housed in the middle school.
If aid for the program expansion is approved, there will be room for four classes of 3-year-olds for a total of 60 students in the fall, Morana says.
