• Port Monmouth/New Monmouth Consolidation Proposal 

     

    In February 2020, Superintendent of Schools, William O. George III, Ed. D., proposed the consolidation of the Port Monmouth and New Monmouth Elementary Schools beginning in September of the 2020-2021 school year.

    Although declining enrollment and a reduction in state aid have created the opportunity for the consolidation of these two schools, budgetary benefits are a positive byproduct of a proposal driven by the educational, social and emotional well-being of all students involved.

    For more information about the proposal, please review the materials and public meeting dates below.
