What Are This Year’s Elementary School Boundaries?

Utilizing technology that was applied to showing municipal ward districts in a previous article, a map with the boundaries showing where Roselle Park children – for the most part – go to each of the three elementary schools is now available for the 2015-16 school year.

Boundary lines received from the Roselle Park School District (RPSD) through Open Public Records Act (OPRA) requests were digitized to show the perimeters for Sherman, Robert Gordon, and EJF/Aldene schools. Readers will be able to click on the (+) and (-) on the bottom right of the map and press and hold their mouse button to zoom in and move around to find their address. They can also click on the top most right icon to view a full-page version of the map. In that version, readers can click on the magnifying glass and enter their exact address.

The boundaries change from year-to-year based on enrollment and population. This can be seen by reviewing the 2014-15 school year map that has been included below. Between the two school years, the Sherman School perimeter increased while the EJF/Aldene boundary was lessened. It should also be noted that there is also a district policy that started, most prominently, with the full-day kindergarten classes. There will be times when – if a certain grade class has reached its maximum student capacity, a child might be moved to another school in district.

When next year’s boundaries are determined by the district – usually after May of next year – the 2016-17 map will be published for reader’s information.
