Vote on proposal was 6 to 3
After more than two hours of heated discussion, the Central Regional Board of Education decided to table a controversial vote on school uniforms tonight.

If there are more than 50 individual violations between September and December of 2013, the uniform policy will go into effect in September 2014. Board members Robert J. Everett Jr., Nick Mackres and Tracy Mianulli voted against the motion. All three said they supported uniforms and thought the policy vote should have been taken tonight. Everett and Mackres hold the Berkeley seats on the board, Mianulli represents Seaside Park…

Applause erupted when residents called on Dr. Sandra Brower to resign; Lacey Township High School senior said the superintendent has 'lost all respect'
LACEY, NJ -- The Lacey Board of Education suspended Superintendent Dr. Sandra Brower without pay Friday evening, nearly a week after she was indicted by a Monmouth County grand jury. Four board members voted to suspend Brower, 46, after she was charged with second-degree official misconduct, third-degree hindering apprehension and fourth-degree obstruction. Board members Eric Schubinger, Jack Martenak and Linda Downing abstained during the special meeting due to conflicts of interest because of family members who work for the district. “It’s a sad turn of events what happened here. I’m sick to my stomach. I’ve been that way since day one,” board member Frank Palino said. “It’s a hard thing to do what we did here. I feel bad for this …

Move would enhance school security, increase academic focus and level socioeconomic differences, superintendent says
Central Regional students got their first look at samples of proposed school uniforms this week and will vote tomorrow whether to require them. "I think some of the kids that didn't like the uniforms originally were swayed by how good the shirts and pants looked," Superintendent Triantafillos Parlapanides said. The Central Regional Board of Education will decide on whether to adopt a uniform policy at the monthly board meeting on May 16, he said. "We are giving them a lot of choices," Parlapanides said. "Shirts are long and short sleeved in garnet, grey and black, pants, skirts and shorts are khaki or black, with a garnet sweater or sweatshirt. Shoes we are still deciding on, but it will be some type of black dress shoe." The students …
