Coming on the heels of Governor Chris Christie's budget address in Trenton, school administrators from around New Jersey will be in Jackson Township in Ocean County next week to hear about policy changes that promise to improve the quality of education in our schools.
Chief education officers will meet at the Jackson Liberty High School on Wednesday, February 29th to hear an address from Acting Education Commissioner Christopher Cerf about the state of things and the key policy initiatives from the State Education Department. The commissioner, senior staff and chief education officer will engage in conversations on reform efforts that are designed to address the state's most pressing issues.
Dr. Richard Bozza is the Executive Director of the New Jersey Association of School Administrators.He says "The chief education officers are at the front lines of New Jersey's schools, working to ensure the highest quality of instruction. We have valuable input to share with Acting Commissioner Cerf. Together, we can create a superior statewide education system through smart educational policy."
Some of the key things that will be addressed include spending plans in education, reforming teacher tenure and the overall picture of how things are in this critical service for the children. Bozza is confident the policy talk can enhance the learning process and communication between faculty and students.
