At the end of the 2020-21 school year, the NJDOE said 117 students had declared their intention to participate in Bridge Year. That's far more than the "30 to 50" Sarlo expected to take advantage of the pilot program.
Bridge Year students will study at a New Jersey community college. Considered non-degree students, each is eligible to take a maximum of nine credits in the fall semester, and six in the spring. All New Jersey public institutions are required to accept those credits.
"It's flexibility. There's no harm," said Sen. Paul Sarlo, D-Bergen, who originally crafted the legislation.
Signed into law by Gov. Phil Murphy on June 26, 2020, Bridge Year gives high school students in the Class of 2021 and 2022 the option of participating in spring activities, including athletics, after their graduation date. Students must complete all requirements necessary to graduate from high school, but will not receive their diplomas with their peers.
Wait until a 20yo injures a 15yo. Morgan and Morgan’s phones are warming up already.
They said 117 are doing it. How many are baseball? I would bet most. We know at least 7 personally doing it. Basically kids who couldn't get an offer as a 2021 hoping to get one as a 2022. Two of the seven already got offers.
That article is a trip down memory lane for me. The Daily Record was my hometown paper, it's where all my HS baseball clippings are from... I will spare you all the details unless you have a burning desire to know. County College of Morris is in the town I grew up in and I took 2 summer classes there to make up credits while in college. They are a very good junior college. Lastly on bridge year and the baseball player Taylor they referenced.... not sure why he is not playing for CCM vs playing for his high school. They have a very good baseball team, my buddy used to be the assistant coach too. From the CCM site: The County College of Morris baseball team has a proud history, producing over 50 professional players and 3 trips to the NJCAA World Series. Morris has produced more MLB players than any other New Jersey junior college.
On my clippings just ask and I will tell you about the Roxbury game where I blew off the reporter afterward so I wouldn't miss the start of the Van Halen concert.
Over easy egg, pork roll on a hard roll. Jersey boy here
Gabagool, motz with peppers and Jersey tomatoes on a crisp Calandra hero
This thread is shattering content boundaries. I say, "Yes!"
I had to take a jug handle to get to my fave pork roll, egg and cheese joint. Couldn't help myself!
