Choice Program

The Hugh J. Boyd, Jr. Elementary School family of approximately 200 diverse children sits between the Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. In the fall 2012 Seaside Heights School District collaborated with the Central Regional School District to create a cohesive K-12 educational program. Now Hugh J. Boyd, Jr. Choice students have the opportunity to continue their learning experiences at Central School District by building on the scaffolding learning process and adequately preparing for the future. Hugh J Boyd will also be offering full day pre-k for the 2019-2020 school year. In the Kindergarten through third grade teachers will be team teaching to maximize results with one teacher being the lead and the second analyzing the data to identify students’ weaknesses and address them. In grades four through sixth grade we will be looping the teachers so all students will have the same Math, English and Social Studies/Science teacher for all three years.

The school supports 21st century learning through the infusion of educational technology at all grade levels. Classroom learning will be enriched by the natural resources provided by the Barnegat Bay and Atlantic Ocean. These experiences will increase the science and technology curricula. Location also allows for marine science research with the close proximity to Barnegat Bay, Atlantic Ocean and Island Beach State Park. This always for hands-on-experiences not available at most other 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 After the deadline, the information will be outdated.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.

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
