Update on State of New Jersey's Funding for CHPS

After the New Jersey Department of Education announced on Thursday, March 7, 2019, that the Cherry Hill Public Schools (CHPS) will receive $18,424,908 in aid for the 2019-2020 school year, members of the Fair Funding for Cherry Hill Schools Committee, CHPS Administration, the Cherry Hill Board of Education, and Cherry Hill Township met with Assemblypersons Lou Greenwald and Pamela Lampitt on Friday, March 8 to express concerns about the funding. An overview of this meeting, including next steps, is available online.

Board of Education Seeks Input on Bond Referendum from Residents without Children Currently in the School System
Board of Education Seeks Input on Bond Referendum from Residents without Children Currently in the School System

The bond referendum designed to address many of the facility needs across our 19 schools failed in December 2018. The Board of Education must regroup and design an approach to the facility needs that will meet with the approval of the voters and enable Cherry Hill to provide safe, well-functioning and positive environments for our students and staff.

Before the next steps are taken, the Board of Education is seeking community members' feedback, constructive criticism and recommendations for moving forward. (Similar surveys were emailed to all Cherry Hill Public Schools parents and employees on March 6, 2019.) The responses to this survey will be openly and thoughtfully considered in the weeks ahead. Paper copies of the survey also are available at the Cherry Hill Public Library. Please take 5-10 minutes by March 27th to anonymously contribute to this important process. Your thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
