About the district

Freehold Regional High School District is located in Monmouth County, New Jersey
Freehold Regional High School District is based in Monmouth County, New Jersey. The district serves K-12 students in several communities including Colt Neck, Farmingdale and Howell. The population of Monmouth County was 630,380 according to the 2010 U.S. Census.[1]

Demographics

Monmouth County outperformed state rates for poverty, median income and higher education achievement in 2010. The county had a poverty rate of 6.5% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 9.4%. The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Monmouth County's median income at $83,842 while the state median income was $71,180. The percentage of county residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (39.6%) is below the state average (35%).[1]

Racial Demographics, 2010[1]
Race Monmouth County (%) New Jersey (%)
White 85.1 73.8
Black or African American 7.7 14.7
American Indian and Alaska Native 0.3 0.6
Asian 5.3 9
Two or More Races 1.6 1.9
Hispanic or Latino 10 18.5

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.[2]

Method of board member selection

The Freehold Regional Board of Education consists of nine members who are elected by district to three-year terms. On November 5, 2013, voters cast ballots for seats representing Englishtown Borough, Farmingdale Borough and Howell Township. The November 2014 election will include seats in Marlboro, Colt Neck and Freehold Township. Voters will cast ballots for seats in Freehold Borough, Manalapan and a second position in Howell Township on November 3, 2015.

Candidates for the Board of Education must be 18 years old, reside within the district and submit nominating petitions to the county clerk by the filing deadline. The district moved board elections from the third Tuesday of April to the first Tuesday of November after a 2012 state law provided greater flexibility for local election officials.[3]
