The highlight of this morning meeting of the Board of Education was the passing of a resolution to move the teachers and staff healthcare plans from the NJ State system to Horizon. This move is in anticipation of large increases in the state policy. The members currently have Horizon in the State plan and will see savings with identical coverage in this move. The Haddonfield Education Association was also present and endorsed the move as long as their due diligence did not uncover a negative impact for the teachers and members.
