S 904: Eliminates requirement for State residency of public school employees for period of three years

S 904 (Ruiz, Oroho):  NJEA strongly supports this bill which is designed to rectify the unintended consequences of the former residency law. The residency law, passed under the prior administration, has resulted in increased bureaucracy and hiring challenges for school districts. Our school districts are facing staffing challenges in all positions, leaving students with reduced services while staff are overworked. NJEA thanks the sponsors for supporting this bill which can help our school districts meet staffing needs..

NJEA supports S 904 and urges you to do the same.
