Superintendent Charles Sampson says the purpose of the Town Hall is to keep the lines of communication open with parents and the community and to discuss the district's elaborate strategic planning process.

"We thought that it was important to provide an update of the status of implementing some of those initiatives within that plan on an annual basis, so those folks can come back and so that we can be held accountable, so that we are moving forward on the initiatives we promised."

Sampson says aside from the strategic plan he'd like to put the matter of budgeting on the table.

"I also want to be able to give them a real nuts and bolts overview of some of the budget implications with the state and how we're operating within the 2% cap and just an informational overview on some of the budgeting processes for public schools."

The Town Hall takes place Wednesday, February 27th at the Marlboro Township Administrative Complex at 7 O'clock. They're asking for notification of your attendance. Parents, guardians, and community members who plan to attend are asked to provide notification by e-mailing nwilliams@frhsd.com by Friday, February 22, 2013. You may also call 732-792-7300 ext. 8542.

According to the District's website the Freehold Regional High School District educates 12,000 students in six high schools in Western Monmouth County which include: Colts Neck High School, Freehold High School, Freehold Township High School, Howell High School, Manalapan High School and Marlboro High School
