School district stalls plan to impose fees for student activities

The Freehold Regional High School District's 2011-2012 proposed budget will not include plans to require students and parents to pick up the tab in order

FREEHOLD - The Freehold Regional High School District's 2011-2012 proposed budget will not include plans to require students and parents to pick up the tab in order to participate in sports and clubs.

School officials said the proposed budget would defer the participation fees for one year. The proposal would also leave the estimated general fund tax levy unchanged and would not cut any programs or services, said Assistant Superintendent for Business Administration Sean Boyce in a news release today.

The district was considering the move to help with a budget shortfall. Instead, the board said it was able to save money with retirements and changes to the way it funds health insurance coverage.
