- School District Grades for the Upper Freehold Regional School District as Determined by the State of New Jersey Department of Education under the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) (P.L. 2010, c. 122)
Under the Commissioner’s Program, the school district’s grade for ABR is a raw score of data and the sum of the ratings for all indicators within each core element on the School Self-Assessment (e.g., 65 of 75 points). The maximum total score for a school is 75 points. The school district’s grade is an average of the total scores of all schools in the school district. The department issued grade is not represented as a letter grade.
The Department is not issuing any associated value or ranking for the raw and average scores. The raw and average scores reflect the school and school district’s degree of compliance with the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR), as determined primarily through each school’s self-assessment of its implementation of the ABR.

- Subscription Busing - the District would like to remind parents of the availability of subscription bus services for the school year. Application forms are still being accepted and the district will make every effort to ensure that every student requesting a seat on the bus receives one.
The Board of Education recommends that students attending Stone Bridge Middle School in September who live under two miles from school take advantage of the subscription bus service or carpool to school. Riding bikes or walking to school is not recommended.
Due to community demand for subscription bus services, the transportation department has added additional buses and anticipates honoring all requests for subscription bus service. Requests for scholarships to cover bus fees are available for financial hardship and will be based on the Federal free and reduced lunch eligibility guidelines. Requests will be held in confidence and may be submitted by contacting the Superintendent's office.
