"Historic" Ruling for the Merchantville School District
The Department of Education has upheld a 2014 ruling enabling the Merchantville School District to end its sending agreement with Pennsauken High School. Merchantville's current eighth-grade class will be the first to attend Haddon Heights High School, starting September 2015.
The Merchantville school board was represented by Porzio attorneys Vito A. Gagliardi, Jr. and Kerri A. Wright. "This case is a historical landmark decision in the State of New Jersey for sure, and certainly for the community of Merchantville," stated Gagliardi. "This decision makes it clear the Department of Education recognizes communities should be allowed to make a choice just like parents can."
