Parent and taxpayer response

JUST SAY WHEN ...TO ANYONE SAYING YOU HAVE NO SAY IN YOUR CHILDREN'S EDUCATION. We are Citizens for Public School Education. We are Board Watchers. We want a Board of Education that follows the Law, because following the Law works for everyone. The purpose of this site is to help close the controversial Achievement Gap that is the subject in many educational arenas. Teachers are invaluable when dedicated individuals and are entrusted to encourage, nurture, and teach each child to achieve to the best of his/her individual abilities. Principals, Superintendents, Business Administrators, Support Staff, School Board Members, Attorneys and everyone else in the district must be dedicated to making certain that teachers have whatever they need in order to perform at their best. Teachers must be willing to go the extra mile like millions have done before them. This blog promotes an active, accurate & objective telling of history that includes ALL cultures and their literary, cultural and historical contributions to building America. We are Board Watchers.

At Long Last, Test Scores

Better late than never? I wonder.
We have been requesting this information for months. They are finally releasing this most important data.
It is in your/our best interest that we fill the room. Before attending the meeting, visit this website and learn about  FOCUS SCHOOLS and what it means to be designated as one. Find out what we mean when we say that the  "RACS" are here. 

Visit the NJ Department of Ed. site and learn about FOCUS Schools before attending this meeting. We want you to be able to understand the relationship between these scores and the designation of Dwight Morrow High School as a FOCUS school. Learn about the RACS. It is extremely important to have this information while listening to this presentation. Formulate your questions before arrival. If we are not allowed questions on Wednesday,  there will be another chance to ask questions at Thursday's Board meeting at 8 pm in Grieco School.

The Message from EPSD:

Presentation on Student Academic Progress on Wednesday 11/28, 8:00pm at Grieco School

On Wednesday evening, the Board of Education has called a special meeting devoted to a presentation on the most recent state testing scores. Everyone in the community is encouraged to attend.

Regulations require that students be tested annually in grades 3 through 8. New Jersey requires that high school students also demonstrate proficiency through state testing. In Englewood, students in all schools with the exception of the Quarles Early Childhood Center take state tests, and we have placed an emphasis on improving our students' proficiency, especially in language arts and math.

 At the meeting, you will hear from the principals who will discuss the students' academic progress. Each will present test scores and explain progress made and obstacles that are being addressed.

The principals also will discuss goals they have set and plans to meet them.Academic Progress Presentation Wednesday Night
We hope you will make an effort to come to this important meeting.
