Full Day Kindergarten is safe...for now in Toms River Regional Schools as District officials continue to simultaneously battle for school funding from the state and carefully craft a budget for the upcoming school years.
They asked for $4.4-million in emergency school aid to help with a budget that's run out of wells to draw more funding from but what the Toms River Regional School District received was $854,634 from the New Jersey Department of Education.
Toms River School officials have continued their fight for their future following a school funding formula developed by lawmakers in Trenton that seeks to deal a crippling bow to a number of school districts.
The answer is unofficially Yes by voters in Toms River to allow the Board of Education to use $147,148,269.00 in funding to undertake various renovations, alterations and improvements at several of the district school buildings.
Fearful over what the School Funding Formula signed into law in July will do to Toms River Schools, a mother of three in the district continues a community wide effort to prevent what would be crippling cuts in Toms River.
