Choice Program

The Holland Township School District provides a comprehensive educational program for approximately 550 students

from Pre- K through Eighth Grade that includes a full day Kindergarten program. In Kindergarten through fourth grade, we offer an integrated, balanced literacy program with ongoing assessments to target the individual needs of our students in self-contained classes with an average class size of 17 students.

Fifth grade is a transitional year for students as they make an adjustment from a self-contained classroom to grade-level teams. Our sixth through eighth grade-level teams provide students with departmentalized instruction and design integrated units incorporating differentiated learning activities to focus on the strengths of each student. Students with special needs receive services using an inclusive model combining the expertise of special education teachers with highly qualified content area teachers.

We believe that technology is most beneficial when integrated into the instruction program. We have a fully automated library/media center, one computer lab, and computers in each classroom. Classrooms are equipped with Smart Boards and wireless technology. The district has a 1:1 computer program (Chromebooks) for grades 4-8. IPad carts also support the infusion of technology in the classroom in grades K-3.

Our district is committed to service learning providing our students with the opportunity to be active citizens in supporting their local community, country, and world. Service learning projects begin at the primary level and continue through middle school.

Students have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities beyond the school day. Extracurricular sports include: Cross Country, Baseball, Softball, Soccer, Volleyball, Basketball, Lacrosse, and Ski/Snowboard Club. Extensions of the encore subjects are: Band, Chorus, Spanish, Enrichment, Science Club, and Drama Club. Student Council also provides special activities to foster student leadership.

 

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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.

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
