New School Expansion


Twists in the Red Bank Charter School Expansion saga in recent days have prompted the borough school district to dial up its attack on the plan.

District Superintendent Jared Rumage said a change in the timeline of the plan’s proposed rollout “amplifies [the] disconnect” between the charter school and the community.

Also in data released i shows that district eighth-graders are not only competitive with those at the charter school, but outscored them, he said.

The charter school plan, filed with the New Jersey Department of Education on December 1, still calls for doubling enrollment, to 400 students over three years, beginning in September. But an amendment filed last Friday calls for changes to the staging of the expansion. Whereas the original plan called for adding 120 students in the first year, with 40 more in each of the two following years, the new plan would cut the first-year increase to 60 students, followed by 80 in the second and third years.
