One of the major goals of the Department of Education is to increase school- and district-level accountability for educational progress by communicating useful information to members of the public to be used in measuring how well their schools are doing. The New Jersey School Report Card has provided the public with information about every school in New Jersey since 1995 when the Legislature mandated the annual accountability report.
The 2011 edition of the New Jersey School Report Card offers the same level of information as last year. We encourage you to examine your school’s report card to decide for yourself whether your school is making satisfactory progress in helping your child meet New Jersey’s Core Curriculum Content Standards. If you would like to give the department feedback on the report card process, please contact us: email@example.com.
Above all, the Department of Education urges you to become involved with your local schools. With the scrutiny and support of the community, our schools can and will provide an excellent education for all of our students.
