KEANSBURG - A total of 26 New Jersey school districts impacted by Sandy will get their share of $1.25 million in recovery funding.

The largest portion of the funding was granted to Keansburg Schools. The district will be given $322,000.

School officials say many families are still out of their homes, and the district has to bus many of the children from temporary homes to schools. The district is also paying tuition for 18 students who are staying too far away to take a bus.

The second largest portion went to Brick, which will get $211,000. Other schools receiving significant amounts include Newark at $32,000, Hoboken at $48,000, Manasquan at $63,000 and Sayreville at $67,000.
