Choice Program

The South Hunterdon Regional School District (SHRSD) consists of Lambertville Public School (PreK-6), West Amwell Township Elementary School (K-6), and South Hunterdon Regional Middle/High School (7-12) for the 2022-2023 school year. Our small, close-knit community with exceptional learning and educational opportunities has choice seat availability in all three buildings. Our choice program has been in effect for the past eleven (11) years with academic and extra-curricular achievements for our students that have proved successful. SHRSD also offers a Career and Technical Educational program in the area of Agriculture at the high school level. Students interested in pursuing this future career path will be able to learn and grow at SHRSD while being offered opportunities that allow them to succeed in this field beyond high school.

 

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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: 18 
School Name: South Hunterdon Regional Middle & High School, Lambertville Public Elementary School, West Amwell Township Elementary School
Specialized Choice Program Name: Agricultural Science (9th-12th)

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.

 No

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
