Welcome to the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. Beginning a new school year, rather than just starting another school year, is full of promise and possibilities.
As the Director of English/ELA for our district, I reiterate the shared goal of academic excellence that every administrator, teacher, parent/guardian and community member hold for every student who attends our schools. Therefore, the ELA Department continues to:
- Implement the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS)
- Complete the revision of the high school curriculum
- Provide access and opportunity for high school course offerings for students
- Remain committed to preparing our students to reach proficiency on the PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers)
Ongoing monthly communication will inform you of the progress being made throughout the district in literacy. Resources can be also viewed on this website to further your awareness and information in this content area.
This is just the beginning………
