"There is a better, more intelligent, and less expensive way to provide local services, and we have it in our collective power to bring about changes for the better."

Regionalize all South Hunterdon schools

The following editorial written by the Mayors of Lambertville, Stockton and West Amwell appeared in the Times of Trenton

 

timesoftrentonNext Tuesday, South Hunterdon will come together to decide whether our four individual school districts — the pre-K-6th grade elementary districts in Lambertville, Stockton and West Amwell and the 7th grade-12 the grade South Hunterdon Regional High School — should be regionalized into one, all-purpose pre-K-12 district. We wholeheartedly endorse this effort and urge its success.

 

Our small districts share services, a smart move that has been beneficial to both taxpayers and students; however, fiscal realities have stretched those partnerships as far as they can go. Our schools still largely lurch from year to year, unsure if an unexpected expense will mean the end of a cherished class or the need for layoffs. Regionalization will allow our schools to manage their fiscal resources together, to be more sustainable and viable and to make classroom investments that will enhance their already stellar programs.

 

Our elementary schools are uniquely embedded and share a special place within our communities. Regionalization does not have to jeopardize this special environment. We are committed to ensuring that our families can fully expect to see the same teachers in the same classrooms teaching the same students until or unless the communities have broadly expressed a desire for change.

 

We encourage voters to approve regionalization on Sept. 24 by voting “Yes” to both questions. The entire state will take notice if we all come together to proactively preserve what remains special in our communities.
