about PPS Triple-A Bond Rating Reaffirmed
Moody's Investor Services reaffirmed its Aaa bond rating for Princeton Public Schools this week The rating agency announced recently that it had modified its methodology to determine the credit ratings of public school districts nationwide, a move that had the potential to affect the bond ratings, both positively and negatively, of more than 600 school districts across the country.
"The underlying finances of Princeton Public Schools are very strong," said Dr. Barry Galasso, Interim Superintendent. "We continue to make prudent decisions that serve this district well. We are pleased that we are not looking at any change in our Aaa credit rating." There are only a few other districts in New Jersey with the Aaa rating from Moody's, the highest possible rating.
about PPS Letter to Governor Murphy
Dear PPS Parents and Staff,
With the support of the Princeton Board of Education, I sent a letter today to Governor Murphy encouraging him to expedite Covid vaccinations for New Jersey educators. In this district we feel strongly that a delay in protecting teachers results in a further reliance on remote instruction, something we all hope to minimize. We are reaching out to other elected officials and continuing to work hard on behalf of PPS students and staff.
I have included a copy of our message to the Governor (below).
