As noted in the Wednesday, July 29, 2009 editions of the Star Ledger and Daily Record, West Morris Regional and Hanover Park Regional will be subject to feasibility studies. An RFP has been released for local universities to study the impact of Consolidation/Regionalization on New Jersey school districts. West Morris Regional serves high school students in the Mendhams, Chesters and Washington Township. Hanover Park Regional serves high students in Florham Park, Hanover and East Hanover. Each of the sending districts will be a part of the study.
The Harding Township Board of Education has taken a proactive approach to the concept of Regionalization/Consolidation. The district hired a group of consultants from Kean University, Seton Hall University and Monmouth University. The Board is remaining impartial on the initiative, which has become a district goal for the 2009-2010 school year.
