Choice Program

The mission of the Choice program in the Long Beach Island School District is to accentuate our STEM Academy so as to instill a love of scientific inquiry and application and to empower students to pursue learning in an interdisciplinary and contextualized learning environment. Providing 21st century learners with the skills and knowledge necessary for advancement into higher education and the workforce is paramount. Giving students the ability to pursue experience in science, technology, engineering, math, marine and environmental initiatives at the elementary and secondary (6th grade) levels aids them to initiate internships while at this level. Our goal is to ensure that students are prepared to make informed choices based on their interests and exposures in the science arena provided in our district. Students are accountable for state content and career technical education (CTE) standards while teachers integrate the skills and knowledge from the core content standards in contextualized learning experiences. Students demonstrate their mastery of the standards in public exhibitions of their learning: marine and environmental events, math and science internships, engineering ROV expeditions, PERCH, MARE, and math integration throughout each module. The STEM Academy community, including students, teachers, parents, and community and post-secondary members, work together to create a positive learning environment. A tone of advancement in knowledge and application of skills permeates the community. Students have an important voice in shaping the learning community.

 

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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: 5

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.

 No
