Brick Schools Open Today for Classes
School facilities largely spared from damage by Hurricane Irene
It's time to dust off the notebooks, pencils and calculators. Brick schools open their doors to students for the 2011-12 school year Tuesday.
Board of Education President Sharon Kight told Brick Patch that all of the township's schools made it through Hurricane Irene well and each will be open on time.
There are a few changes, mostly by way of state mandate, that students will experience heading into the new school year. Three high school classes, Integrated Science, Introduction to Business and Personal Finance, will be replaced by Environmental Science and Financial Literacy, both of which students will be required to take in order to graduate.
Additionally, the Brick district is complying with the state's new anti-bullying law. Training has begun for all of the district's approximately 1,500 employees who have contact with children, and each school has a designated specialist tasked with administering the policy.
Here's some more information to help get your family started off in the right direction this school year:
