Their history, of course, does not stand out as have the names of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln but there are some in the history of Cape May and vicinity whose family names have lived on by way of the tattered pages of writings by others and sometimes by their own testimonies.

At times, circumstances have given birth to the fame of local people. At other times it was a combination of circumstances and their own makings that wrote their names in the history books, and at still other times it resulted from their individual initiatives.

WEST CAPE MAY – The West Cape May School District is one of 138 school districts accused by the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey of making it overly restrictive for a student to enroll at the school.

In a recent letter, the ACLU-NJ advised the school districts to change “discriminatory enrollment policies” or face litigation.

The ACLU-NJ says the districts require overly restrictive forms of identification for an adult to enroll a child in school, contrary to state and federal law. Almost every New Jersey county had at least one school district with problematic identification guidelines, which tend to single out immigrant families, according to information from the ACLU-NJ.

CAPE MAY – After a closed-door session April 1, Cape May City Council unanimously approved a resolution authorizing a special counsel to ask the state Department of Education commissioner for permission to hold a referendum on whether to withdraw from or dissolve the Lower Cape May Regional School District.

Cape May government has been fighting since 2012 to change the funding formula for the regional school district. Cape May sends the fewest number of students to the school, but pays the most, at around $6 million, said Mayor Edward J. Mahaney Jr. at Tuesday’s council meeting.

There's no time frame on the planned special vote in Cape May, Lower Township and West Cape May.
