The Township Committee this evening approved a $1,000,000 grant to help restore the athletic programs cut from the budget.
The District Superintendent, Board of Education President and other Board of Education members, as well as public school students, were in attendance to show support for the Township’s decision. The Superintendent and Board President spoke and thanked the Committee for their support.
As earlier reported on TLS, the money was originally to come as a loan, but was reportedly changed for legal reasons.
Last month, the Township also covered the cost for the restoration of the Lakewood High School team.
As earlier reported, the state also kicked in with an $8 million loan to help cover the deficit. All teacher positions were also restored.
