2014-2015 DISTRICT GOALS
 

Educational Programs Committee

  1. Develop and implement a plan for standards-aligned grading district-wide.  The plan should identify realistic goals and describe the action steps and expected outcomes each year (1, 2, and 3) of implementation specific to each school site.  (This is a multiple year goal, which will be implemented in phases with projected yearly outcomes.)
  2. Develop a plan of action to implement and sustain edConnectNJ in all schools and classrooms across the district.  edConnectNJ is an Instructional Improvement System (IIS) that integrates classroom, assessment, and school and district data reporting modules to improve the quality and effectiveness of teaching and learning by aligning curriculum, instruction, and assessment and using data to drive instruction.  (This is a multiple year goal to be implemented in phases with projected yearly outcomes.)
Personnel Committee
  1. Conduct a review of existing personnel positions in the district to determine their current purpose, validity, and value and eliminate and/or discontinue funding those that are no longer viable or needed.
Finance/Facilities
  1. Develop and implement a plan for a ROD Grant supported $19.8M (State $7.9M/Local $11.9M) referendum for district building renovations that will result in successful voter approval on November 4, 2014.
  2. Research additional revenue sources in the form of: exploring additional revenue from additional sending/receiving relationships, revenue from Choice program participation, and researching and applying for grant funding in addition to continuing to seek cost savings within our current fiscal operations.
