No more courtesy buses
State mandated budget caps have forced the Long Hill Twp. school district to potentially cut many important programs. Under consideration for elimination are: Reading Recovery, 2.5 classroom teachers @ Millington School, all band and chorus programs at Cental School, 5th grade band, .5 Basic Skills teachers @Central School, along with several other programs and positions. Also being considered is the elimination of courtesy bussing which would save the district $25,000. per route.(Bussing currently costs the district approximatly $1,000,000 each year) This petition serves to alert the Board of Education that the residents of Long Hill Twp. feel that courtesy bussing must be the first thing to go in order to preserve the educational and academic programs slated to be cut.
