STATEMENT TO THE PUBLIC

Often times it may appear to members of our audience that the Board of Education takes action with very little comment and in many cases a unanimous vote. Before a matter is placed on the agenda at a public meeting, the administration has thoroughly reviewed the matter with the Superintendent of Schools. If the Superintendent of Schools is satisfied that the matter is ready to be presented to the Board of Education, only then, is it placed on the agenda for action at a public meeting. In rare instances, matters are presented to the Board of Education for discussion at the same meeting that final action may be taken.

PRESENTATIONS:


  • Kathy Winecoff – NJSBA School Boards Training – “The Board’s Role in Curriculum”

  • Marco Oliveria (Aramark), Bill Papalardo (JBA Architecture and Consulting) – Referendum Update

  • Marco Oliveria (Aramark) – Playground Options
