CQE to address Board at tomorrow night's Board of Ed meeting

| 1 Comment

From Citizens for Quality Education:

Tomorrow night's Board of Education meeting promises to be a meeting of tremendous importance: discussion of the high school principal search; the introduction of baseline data for the 10-11 budget process as well as some old business, like transportation, capital projects and full-day kindergarten.  The budget process should be very interesting in a year with municipal increases, promised reduction in state aid and a new governor with a dim view on sending any aid out of Trenton.


CQE will present its advocacy issues for the year at this meeting, after being denied a small meeting with the superintendent, which was the process in prior years.  


Jim Jaques, CQE president, will address the Board during the public comment session at the end of the meeting. He will discuss ( CQE%20Advocacy%202009-2010.pdf) from the New Jersey School Report Card database; including college attendance rates, SAT scores, length of the school day, and AP enrollment rates, as they relate to the overall focus on academics in the school district. We encourage anyone interested in academics in Metuchen to attend the meeting and take part in the discussion.

The Board of Education welcomes and encourages public participation. I'm glad members of the community are coming out to the meeting tonight. Sunshines Laws prohibit more than 4 members of the BOE from meeting together to discuss education issues other than at a public meeting (with the very few exceptions). The board cannot meet as a board with a citizens group in private. The proper forum for this discussion is at an open public Board of Education meeting.
