Choice Program

Berlin Township School District is located in Camden County, outside of Philadelphia, PA. Parents and Community members are encouraged to be involved in many exciting initiatives. PEACE is our parent organization which brings much support to our school community.  The district's many current initiatives include: 1) implementing GoMath program in grades K-8 that is aligned to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, 2) district-wide Positive Behavior supports program, 3) district- wide Response to Intervention program, 4) further enhancing our literacy program with the use of programs such as Fundations, Just Words, Wilson, Guided Reading, Units of Study Writing Program, Accelerated Reader, and 5) Professional Learning Communities to allow the staff to solve problems, conduct research, and refine best practices within their teaching.

Berlin Township Schools is moving towards providing more opportunities for the 21st Century Learner by reducing the computer to student ratio across the district and purchasing chrome books for student use. At the present moment we have Chrome books for all students to be used in school daily as well as SMART Boards and Brightlinks in each classroom, computer labs and computers in our media centers. 

Choice Seats Availability

The purpose of the chart below is to inform parents of choice seat availability before the application deadline in early December. After the deadline, the information will be outdated.

The Department of Education limits the number of choice seats that each district can fill. The “maximum number of new choice students that can be enrolled” tells parents how many new choice students the district can enroll in the next school year. If more than the maximum number of applications is received, a lottery will be held and a waitlist will be developed. Waitlists will be developed for all approved choice grades even if no seats are currently available. NA indicates the district is not accepting choice applications for those grades.

Maximum Number of New Choice Students that can be Enrolled: 7

District Choice Policies

Indicate Yes/No/NA 

The district accepts Tier 2 students (see definitions of Tier 1 and Tier 2 ).

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have a sibling currently attending the choice district, provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 Yes

The district gives enrollment preference to choice applicants who have completed the terminal grade of the sending district (i.e., students who attend a choice district with grades that terminate before 12th grade and have a natural progression to this choice district), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria.

 N/A

The district gives enrollment preference to resident students who move before the application deadline. If resident students move and file choice applications for the following year prior to the deadline, the district will give them enrollment preference (i.e., accept them after the enrollment preference students described in b. and c. above, but ahead of other applicants), provided there are choice seats available in the choice-approved grades/programs and the students meet any program-specific criteria. If the district has already reached its approved choice enrollment maximum, this preference will not apply.

 Yes

The district gives special consideration to resident students who move after the application deadline. Students in this situation may apply as late applicants and be added to the front of the district’s waitlist, provided the students will enroll in a choice-approved grade/program and they meet any program-specific criteria. No additional choice seats above the maximum will be approved by the NJDOE to accommodate these students.

 Yes
