Issues in the district
District expansion and online offerings

About the district

Elizabeth Public Schools is located in Union County, New Jersey. The county seat is Elizabeth. Union County is home to 548,256 residents, according to the United States Census Bureau. In the 2011-2012 school year, Elizabeth Public Schools was the fourth-largest school district in New Jersey and served 23,386 students.
Union County underperformed compared to the rest of New Jersey in terms of higher education achievement in 2012. The United States Census Bureau found that 31.6 percent of Union County residents aged 25 years and older had attained a bachelor's degree compared to 35.4 percent for New Jersey as a whole. The median household income for Union County was $69,347 compared to $71,637 for the state of New Jersey. The percentage of people below poverty level for Union County was 10.4 percent while it was 9.9 percent for the state of New Jersey.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
