MIDLAND PARK – The Board of Education is in the early stages of exploring a sending-receiving arrangement with a neighboring school district, officials announced this week.
At the Feb 26 school board meeting, board president William Sullivan said he and Superintendent Dr. Marie C. Cirasella would be meeting informally on March 8 with the Ridgewood School District’s board president and superintendent to discuss the feasibility of a sending arrangement.
In such an arrangement, the sending district pays the receiving district a fee to educate its students.
“We’re just gathering information at this point to share with the board, so I don’t want anyone to view this as a consensus by the board on moving forward with anything,” Sullivan said. “If the board has any interest in this type of arrangement in the future, we will have some preliminary information available to us.”
