Toms River Schools “Rally Trip to Trenton” fairness formula protest postponed Thursday morning
A protest planned at the Statehouse in Trenton this morning by the Toms River Regional School Board of Education has been postponed, according to school officials.
The "Rally Trip to Trenton" was postponed by the Toms River Regional Schools Board of Education in an announcement Thursday morning.
No makeup date for the protest was announced.
Here is the statement from Toms River Schools:
"Due to the denial of our request for a permit to organize at the Trenton State House on June 22, 2017, our plan to bring buses to rally in Trenton to oppose the $3.3 million reduction in our State funding has been postponed. We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your ongoing patience and support. Your voices are still important as there is much at stake for our children's education. The financial implications for our community would be catastrophic."
Their permit applications to bring 100 buses to Trenton this morning were denied due to statehouse construction.
The Statewide distribution formula deal would pull millions each year from Toms River, Brick, Middletown and other spots around the state.
