Moving Forward Together
Greetings; as we look to defrost from a moderate winter, the Board of Education takes pride in knowing that we are doing our part to be fiscally responsible to the taxpayers of Neptune Township.
As in past years, Boards of Education and administrators from school districts across New Jersey work together to craft a budget for the upcoming school year. However, unlike many other districts, Neptune Township has opted to allow you – the voters -- the opportunity to have a say on the budget. As you may be aware, Neptune Board of Education also holds the distinction of being one of a handful of districts in the state who can say that we have a great staff, state-of-the-art facilities, and no debt.
I am equally as proud that the board has been actively seeking public input on various issues, and what we have learned and are encouraged about is the fact that Neptune residents are really passionate about education and our children's future. Over the past few weeks, we have had many thoughtful and transparent discussions on the right approach to carrying out our educational priorities as we build next year's budget. Our goal, of course, is to ensure that we are responsibly preparing each and every student to meet his or her fullest potential.
At this time, the Board has successfully negotiated and ratified fair settlements with its Department Chairs and Principals/Supervisors unit. Recently, a tentative agreement between the Board of Education and the Neptune Township Education Association, has also been struck. The Board continues to support its employees and works collaboratively with them to provide positive experiences for our students.
So I ask you as members of our Neptune Community of Learners to continue to support our children, support our teachers, support our staff, and support education by exercising your vote on our budget. As always, this board welcomes all members of the Neptune Community to our Monthly Board Meetings. Please check our website for meeting dates and location.
On behalf of the entire Neptune Board of Education, I would like to wish you and your family a wonderful spring as we approach the end of the 2016-2017 school year.
President, Neptune Township Board of Education
