Choice Program

All programs available to resident Deptford Township School district students are available to Choice school students. Of great value to our students and community are our outstanding sports programs, interactive student activities, and our extensive course catalog for both our middle and high students which enable students to take many advanced and AP courses. This allows all Choice students to select a school life and schedule that is highly beneficial to their goals and cultivate their interests as an active member of our schools. In addition to a comprehensive middle and high school curriculum, other programs and academies include: STEM programs in Academy of Engineering and Computer Science, Academy of Biomedical Sciences and Nursing/Allied Health, Modeling Science, an Academy of Business, an Academy of Fine and Performing Arts, an Academy of Carpentry, Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC), an extensive and award –winning music and band program, and Advancement via Individual Determination (AVID) Program. Furthermore, several of our high school courses allow students to earn dual credit with Rowan College of Gloucester County. As a result, many Choice students would find a great deal of “Spartan Pride” and excitement in attending Deptford Township Schools.

 

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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: 4

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.

 Yes

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
