Education[edit]

The Elk Township School District serves students in public school for pre-kindergarten through sixth grade at Aura School, which was built in 1927, with the newest addition built in 2002.[72][73] As of the 2014-15 school year, the district and its one school had an enrollment of 619 students and 35.2 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 17.6:1.[74]

For seventh through twelfth grades, public school students attend the Delsea Regional School District, which serves students from both Elk Township and Franklin Township.[75] Students from Newfield attend the district as part of a sending/receiving relationship begun in September 2010 after Newfield ended its prior relationship with the Buena Regional School District.[76] Schools in the district (with 2014-15 enrollment data from the National Center for Education Statistics[77]) are Delsea Regional Middle School[78] with 537 students in grades 7 and 8, and Delsea Regional High School[79] with 1,164 students in grades 9 - 12.[80][81]

The New Jersey Department of Education has considered a vote by the Board of Education of the Franklin Township Public Schools in June 2010 requesting that the district withdraw from the Delsea Regional School District, which would require that the Delsea region be dissolved as about 80% of the regional district's students come from Franklin. With the withdrawal of Franklin Township, two options being considered were to either have Franklin and Elk Townships create a new regional district with Newfield students attending on a send-receive basis, or having Franklin Township establish its own PreK-12 district which would receive students from both Elk Township and Newfield.[82][83]

Transportation[edit]

Franklin and Elk currently make up the regional district for students in grades 7 to 12. If a vote takes place, residents in those communities would decide on whether to create a new district for both municipalities' students in prekindergarten through 12th grade.... Newfield, which previously sent its kids to Buena Regional schools, now sends its students to Franklin and Delsea."
