Moriarty Municipal Schools is encouraging home school families to join a partnership committee that will explore ways the public schools can work with home schoolers.
…The district approved budget cuts this year totaling more than $500,000, and declining enrollment was one of several reasons. But Moffitt emphasized that partnership possibilities aren’t being explored for the sole purpose of uncovering more funding.
“That’s not our only purpose … if we got back every single home schooler, it still wouldn’t solve our financial issues,” Moffitt said. “So that is one reason, but that is not our purpose for these meetings. Our purpose is to really start building a partnership.”
