Green Hills School Selected as a 2013-2014 Interdistrict Public School Choice Location
Green Hills School in Greendell, NJ has been selected as a 2013-2014 Interdistrict Public School Choice location. The Interdistrict Public School Choice Program was originally created by the New Jersey legislature in January 2000 as a five-year pilot program designed to explore whether public school choice would provide a viable educational option for New Jersey students and their families by offering flexibility in selecting a public school program that best meets the needs of an individual student. In June 2010, the legislature established a permanent Interdistrict Public School Choice Program. Under the school choice program, interested New Jersey school districts apply to become choice districts, opening seats into which they will accept non-resident students at the expense of the state. This enables Green Hills, a Sussex County school, to receive money that normally goes to other areas of the state.
Green Hills was selected based on the following criteria:
- the fiscal impact on the district
- the quality and variety of academic programs offered within the district
- the potential effectiveness of the student application process and of the admissions criteria utilized
- the impact on student population diversity in the district
- the degree to which the program will promote or reduce educational quality in the choice district and the sending districts.
