UNION, NJ - The Township of Union Board of Education has proposed a new annual process to verify that students who are attending Union schools are in fact domiciled within the Township.

The district-wide re-registration process will enable the Board of Education to remove students who are ineligible to attend Union schools and to direct tax dollars to the students entitled to receive an education in the Township.

According to a press release from Union schools, “it is in the interest of all residents and taxpayers that this process occurs each school year beginning now.”  The press release directs residents to visit the Board of Education website at http://www.twpunionschools.org for an application.
