Monmouth Beach to cut special needs programs
The superintendent of Monmouth Beach schools says that there isn't enough money in the budget to pay for a pre-school special needs program.
The program is set to be cut in the fall. The school district recently found out it will receive more than $6,000 a year in state aid, down from the usual $258,000.
Parents are split on how the cuts will affect students. Some are worried, but others say the tight-knit shore community will band together to rebuild what is lost, even if that means providing funding out of their own pockets.
