Choice Program

The New Egypt Schools offer a wide range of educational programs.  The district is comprised of four schools.   The Plumsted Township School District is in the northeast corner of Ocean County that presently serves approximately 1200 students from preschool through 12th grade. The district is a close-knit community, yet with a diverse population of learners.  The district is committed to developing a 21st century instructional program based on New Jersey Student Learning Standards, personalization, stressing mastery and providing rigorous yet differentiated instruction for all students. Programs range from self-contained special education populations to enrichment and honors/AP classes. The district seeks to infuse technology in the classroom as well as to support learners who will utilize and apply STEAM resources in a number of academic and practical applications. The Dr. Gerald H. Woehr Elementary School offer a range of supportive services in grades PreK-5. 

Specialized programs include: Spanish instruction, enrichment, technology instruction and tech lab, as well as supportive and pull-out ESL instruction.  The New Egypt Middle School offers unique programs that include: world language programs in Spanish and French, instrumental music instruction and a full-year band program, as well as a STEAM elective in all grades.  In addition to the traditional vocational, college prep and honors courses, New Egypt High School offers students a Teaching Academy, an Engineering Academy, a Law & Justice Academy, a Business Academy and a Video/TV Production Academy allowing students to receive specific electives to further their interests in these areas. Students are pushed to accelerate in content areas that they have special interest.  Personalized Learning is stressed as students develop their own learning plans.    

 

 

 

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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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: 2

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
