Interdistrict Public School Choice
Middle Township Public Schools is an Approved Choice District, so students can enroll in our schools through New Jersey’s Interdistrict Public School Choice Program, at no cost to their parents/guardians, even if they do not reside in our sending communities. The program increases educational opportunities and enables parents/guardians to select a school that best serves the needs of their child/children.
Read more about the program: Student Application Process/Department of Education School Choice
To participate, students must submit the application at the links found below directly to the district.
Approved Choice Districts designate available seats open to students in specific grades and programs. The district gives enrollment preference to students with a sibling currently attending Middle Township Public Schools, providing they enroll, meet any program-specific criteria, and seats are available in the desired grades.
More information is available in the School Choice Brochure.
When making your decision, please be aware that transportation may not be provided for your student. Depending on the circumstance, the resident district may provide aide in lieu of transportation. For further information please contact the NJ Department of Education’s School Choice transportation procedures. http://www.nj.gov/education/finance/transportation/procedures/choice_proc.pdf
