Woodbridge Begins Considering School Cuts

AVENEL – At a public meeting held at Avenel Middle School Monday, Woodbridge school officials began preparing contingency plans if state school aid is cut.

Arts programs, high school and middle school extracurricular activities, administrators and support personnel and courtesy bussing could all be on the chopping block. In a worst case scenario, officials would not rule out closing a school.

School boards throughout New Jersey face uncertainty because Gov. Chris Christie’s administration has not indicated what action it will take on state school aid. Significant cuts remain a distinct possibility as New Jersey faces an $11 billion budget deficit next year.
