Eatontown School District Enrollment Shows No Need For New School

EATONTOWN: A study of the Eatontown School District shows that the need for a new school will not be needed, despite some new housing projects slated for completion in the next few years.

In June, the Eatontown Board of Education hired Ross Haber and Associates to conduct an enrollment, facility and organizational study to figure out what enrollment projections may look like for the district's four schools and review current facilities and their capacities.

"Although we are in the study phase and no decisions have been made by the Eatontown Board of Education (BOE) at this time, I do not see a need for new school construction based upon the options listed in the study," Eatontown School District Superintendent Scott McCue told Word On The Shore. "If an option was selected, schools may be reorganized but I do not see a new school being constructed based upon enrollment projections and the study data."

The study shows that enrollment at the schools has declined in recent years and is projected to decline, despite some development projects in the borough and at the former Fort Monmouth.

Redistricting was analyzed as a way to balance enrollment, but the study does not not call such action. Reorganization could be possible, according to MCue.

The results of the study will be presented during a Oct. 26 Eatontown BOE meeting at 7 p.m.
