The resident district is responsible for the transportation of all eligible choice students and is not guaranteed. To be eligible for transportation services, a student must live within 20 miles of the school. If the cost of transportation will exceed the maximum amount designated in the annual NJ State budget, 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, parents should receive notification of their transportation options from the resident district. For more information, read the Transportation Procedures for choice students

What are the odds of your child being accepted into our School Choice Program?

Each year, the Pittsgrove Township School District receives more applications than there are seats available.  For the 2022-2023 school year, the State of New Jersey has once again capped our School Choice enrollment.  Please review our District School Choice Profile for information about this year's acceptance procedures.
