Senator Joe Kyrillos (R-Monmouth) has introduced legislation that will make it possible for towns that don’t have a local school district to exit from one regional school district and enter another. There is no process under current law that allows for such a transfer.

Legislation by Sen. Joe Kyrillos would create a process for towns without local school districts to shift from one regional district to another. (Wikipedia)

“We have a number of small towns in New Jersey whose non-operating school districts were eliminated during the Corzine Administration,” said Kyrillos. “Those towns may find new regionalization opportunities that provide a better fit for students and taxpayers. Unfortunately, State law requiring a local school district to approve such a move was never updated to reflect that some towns now have no local school district at all.”

Thirteen non-operating school districts were forcefully eliminated by the State in the closing months of the Corzine Administration.

Under current law, no mechanism exists for any of those towns whose local school districts were eliminated in 2009 to exit from one regional school district and enter another.

Kyrillos’ new legislation would create such a process.

“My proposal would give towns the opportunity to pursue such a transfer when it makes sense, and allow voters the final say,” added Kyrillos. “They should have that choice.”
