  2. Something doesn't add up how is enrollment up if the Mexican community is moving out to Freehold Toms River etc..
    Is there a shortage of classroom space in the current buildings or they made smaller classes hence the need to rent a new school.

  3. Keep on digging you'll find millions of dollars spent on after school programs non of them are mandated by the state but not a dollar of that is on the chopping block or put to a referendum. Only courtesy bussing which is blamed on the orthodox schools.

  4. Pre-K expenses should not be paid by the board of Ed. It is a babysitting service. Lets be honest, kids don't get much education at that age.

    1. No. Read the budget it's 500,000 to lease the school on top of that is 2.7 million for cleaning services.

  7. Preschool is a mandated program in Lakewood. The Lakewood School District also receives a Preschool Grant which funds the entire general education component of the Preschool program. Why would a funded program be part of the referendum? By the way, all four year olds living in Lakewood may register to attend the Preschool program!

  8. What should the custodial cost be, if you insinuate they are too high? Perhaps they pay an even fee every month instead of a higher one during the ten months of school and lower during the summer. Steady payments can make budgeting simpler. The school also has K and 1st grade, how much would we save for bussing by denying pre-K?
