Seaside Park Elementary School closing

Low enrollment is forcing an elementary school in Ocean County to close. Seaside Park Elementary School is being closed in an effort to save money. Officials say it would cost $37,000 a student to stay open. When the students transfer to Toms River Elementary School, officials say it will only cost $10,500 a student. Seaside Park students will attend middle school and high school in the Central Regional District in Berkeley.
