Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Delran Township Board of Education takes safety and security seriously and has supported the recommendation for a Security Manager position in the 2017-2018 operating budget. To that end, the Board developed expectations that include topics regarding school security in order to allow for seamless oversight in this area so we can protect our children and staff members.
In September, Mr. Howard Davenport, formerly a Lieutenant with the Delran Police Department, began to serve the district as its Security Manager. With this position, the Board endeavors to have increased oversight of all areas of emergency preparedness, a representative to serve as a liaison between the district and local law enforcement and to conduct all investigations of student residency.
As we progress in the area of student residency, all district families currently enrolled in grade 2, grade 5 and grade 8 are being asked to re-certify their residency during the 2017-2018 school year. Below you can find logistical information regarding completing this requirement in advance of the 2018-2019 school year.
Residency re-certification for children currently enrolled in grade 2, grade 5 and grade 8 will be done by appointment and must be completed by March 1, 2018. Appointments will be held December through February with morning and afternoon time slots to choose from. Please visit our district website at www.delranschools.org and click on the Residency Re-certification link to choose the appointment date and time that works for you. All appointments will be held at the Delran Board of Education Building located at 52 Hartford Road in Delran.
