Summer programs Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why is Summer Intersession not at Robert Hunter School?
In order to conduct the Summer Intersession Programs cost effectively, several factors must be considered. These included registration numbers, the staff needed to accommodate those numbers, and the location of the facility in the Community.
As a result of these variables the Recreation Committee has decided to offer the summer program at three schools. One at each end of the Township and one in the middle – Desmares, Barley Sheaf, and Copper Hill.
Each of the sites has large registration numbers making the staff to student ratio cost-effective. The decision is made since the facilities can accommodate the number of participants and are in a location that serves a large portion of the Community.
In order to conduct all programs offered by this Committee, we need to rely on registration fees to pay for all expenses. Programming is not funded by budgetary resources provided by the municipalities of Flemington and Raritan Township.
The Recreation Committee has always prided itself as being a very responsibility custodian of taxpayers’ money and will continue to do so while providing quality, safe programs.
