WEST LONG BRANCH: The borough school district and Shore Regional High School will soon have another sending district.
Acting-Commissioner of Education Kimberly Harrington has approved an application filed by the Allenhurst Board of Education to replace its sending-receiving relationship with the Asbury Park Board of Education and establish sending-receiving relationships with the West Long Branch Board of Education for Pre-K-8th grade students and with the Shore Regional High School Board of Education for the high school students.
The application was filed with the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) in March and was approved on July 20 after a 20-day public comment period was held.
Allenhurst currently has about 38 school-age students who could start attending school in West Long Branch as soon as September.
The Allenhurst Board of Education, which is a non-operating school board, plans to sign sending-receiving contracts with the West Long Branch and the Shore Regional High School Boards of Education soon.
The Allenhurst Board of Education is asking anyone with questions concerning this matter to call them at (732) 531-8483.
