The Ridgewood Public Schools district will not enter into a sending/receiving arrangement with the Midland Park Board of Education, officials said last week.

Midland Park school officials approached Ridgewood about the possibility of sending Midland Park High School students to be educated at Ridgewood High School (RHS) for a per-pupil fee. But the district has no room, Ridgewood Superintendent Dan Fishbein said.

“There is no interest in entering into a send/receive agreement. They have 340 [high school] students, and we do not have room,” he said. “We simply met with a neighbor who is in the extreme preliminary stages of exploring if this is a direction they want to contemplate heading.

“We did not even get into details,” Fishbein added when asked for more information about the number of students that might have been sent to RHS. “We simply don’t have the room.”
