Ridgewood NJ, based upon the information and projections submitted by ITDC, confirmation of ITDC’s numbers by the auditing firm, Lerch, Vinci, & Higgins, and the legality confirmation by the Ridgewood Board attorney, Mr. Giacobbe, Dr. Gorman recommended that the Board give ITDC an opportunity to run a successful program in the upcoming 2021-2022 school year. Furthermore, if ITDC’s enrollment does not meet the projected numbers by October 31, they will be asked to make further cuts during the next school year to attempt to reach a profit, and the program will be closed at the end of the 2021-2022 school year. Additionally, if they do meet their projected numbers and break even or show a surplus, the recommendation is to allow ITDC to operate in the 2022-2023 school year on probationary status. Following a discussion by the Board, they voted to accept the recommendation.
