Attention all School Choice applicants- The new template reflecting seats available in the Ocean City School District for the 2014-15 school year is now available. Please take a minute to read the second paragraph on the template which gives a brief explanation of our current situation.
Note to Prospective School Choice Applicants: As you may be aware, the funding for school choice has been under review and due to budgetary constraints, has forced the New Jersey Department of Education (DOE) to establish caps. These caps have closed the door of opportunity for many students to participate in our programs. The Ocean City School District is currently working closely with the DOE and local legislators with regard to the DOE’s new cap placed on open seats for our School Choice program. We are hoping to hear from the DOE shortly as to the number of new School Choice seats that we can permit to new students.
Below is a list of local legislators that you are encouraged to contact regarding this issue. We have been in direct contact with the DOE and have sought exemptions, especially for siblings for the 14/15 school year. Any additional support you could provide may prove beneficial for the continuance and expansion of school choice in the State of NJ.
