Shore Regional Could Study Possibility Of PreK-12 School District

WEST LONG BRANCH: The Shore Regional Board of Education (BOE) is exploring the feasibility of creating a PreK-12 regional school district.

Board member Ron O'Neill led the discussion at the conclusion of the meeting as an alternative to Oceanport School District building a new school by way of a multi million dollar referendum. That referendum would also affect Sea Bright as their students attend the Oceanport School District.

Long Branch resident Vincent LePore attended the Shore Regional meeting and brought up the subject at the June 5 Sea Bright Council meeting.

"They came up with other options where they can easily place those students in other schools if there was regionalization without any cost to Oceanport or Sea Bright," LePore said.

Regionalization would also streamline all of the boards of education and create one board as opposed to individual boards for Shore Regional, West Long Branch, Oceanport and Monmouth Beach. It could also create a cost savings as less personnel would be needed.

Shore Regional Board of Education President Beth Garrigal said the Shore board hopes to meet with the other boards sometime in July to discuss "how they can help each other financially."
