Millburn Board of Education members stated their opposition loud and clear regarding the applications for two charter schools that could draw students from the district.

Applications for two Mandarin-themed elementary level charter schools, Hanyu International Academy and Hua Mei Charter School, have been submitted to the Department of Education. The public school districts in the schools’ catchment area, including Millburn, have until May 30 to send comments to the state.

At the May 23 board meeting, members passed a resolution allowing Superintendent of Schools James Crisfield to comment to the state in opposition to the schools. They also passed a resolution supporting a New Jersey School Boards Association resolution which states that local voters should have control over the approval for charter schools.
