The findings of a study commissioned by Lakehurst educators to determine if they should end a many-years relationship with Manchester will not be presented at the borough's Board of Education meeting Tuesday night.
The study, which will determine if it would be more beneficial for the borough's teenagers and taxpayers for high school students to attend Jackson Liberty rather than Manchester, will not be presented at the board's September meeting, according to Lakehurst Superintendent of Schools Jill Dobrowansky
An information session featuring the findings is expected to be presented at the board's October meeting, said Dobrowansky, who was approved for the post in August. Parents and residents will be notified of the meeting, she said.
It was revealed in June that Lakehurst's school administrators were investigating the switch after they said that it may save borough residents money and provide more educational opportunities for students.
Lakehurst is charged the actual cost to educate each pupil it sends to Manchester, that district's business administrator has said. For the 2012-13 school year, 155 Lakehurst students will attend high school in Manchester at $14,000 per student, a fee that remained stable from the previous school year.
According to the Jackson School District, its 2011-12 cost per pupil cost was nearly $12,000.
Manchester Superintendent of Schools David Trethaway has said that his district does "great things" at the high school. Nonetheless, he said his district has cooperated with the study.
