The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) has moved the September 2018 Special School Election date to Tuesday, Oct. 2.
The statutory date of the September 2018 Special School Election is Tuesday, Sept. 25, which coincides with the second day of Sukkot, a full day of religious observance. N.J.S.A 19:60-2 provides the state’s education commissioner the authority to change a special school election date when it coincides with a period of religious observance.
After consideration of all religious observances following Sept. 25, the NJDOE has changed the September 2018 Special School Election date to Tuesday, Oct. 2.
For questions about the change to the statutory special school election date, please contact the NJDOE’s Office of School Facilities and Finance via email.
