School Choice

The Bound Brook School District has been chosen by the State of New Jersey as a School of Choice

"Providing Better Educational Opportunities for Students and Their Families"

As applications are received they will be assigned a number. If more than the max number of applications are received, the number assigned to the application will be used for a group lottery of all grades and a waitlist will be developed. If we need to have a lottery, School Choice will not have a lottery.

NJDOE’s Student Application Process for Parents and Students, with step by step instructions:
If your student is currently registered with his/her resident district, complete the Notice of Intent to Participate Form, submit it to your resident district by December 1, and obtain a signed receipt acknowledging that you submitted the form. Keep the receipt for your records. By law, a resident district must be informed if a student intends to participate in the choice program.

Transportation Note to Parents

Transportation of choice students is not guaranteed. If a student is eligible for transportation (within 20 miles of the school) and the cost will exceed the maximum amount designated in the Annual Appropriations Act, the parent/guardian will be given aid in lieu of transportation and, in some cases, the option of receiving the transportation and paying the additional amount over the maximum. By Aug. 1, 2020, parents should receive notification of their transportation options from the resident district. For more information, read the Transportation Procedures for choice students.


Notificación A Los Padres Acerca Del Transporte:

No se garantiza el transporte de los estudiantes de elección. Si un estudiante es elegible para el transporte (menos de 20 millas de la escuela) y el costo supera los $1,000, la madre/el padre/tutor recibirá $1,000 como asistencia en lugar de transporte y, en algunos casos, la opción de recibir el transporte y pagar el importe adicional necesario aparte de los $1,000. Antes del 1 de agosto de 2019, los padres deben recibir notificación de sus opciones de transporte del distrito de residencia. Para obtener más información, lea los Procedimientos de transporte para estudiantes de elección.
