Educational Initiatives and Resources

The NJDOE embarks upon numerous educational initiatives in an effort to maximize opportunities for New Jersey public school students to ensure that all students are ready for success after high school (career and college ready). While many of these initiatives may not be new in the field of education, many have been updated to represent best practice, current trends and/or to serve as a resource to parents, educators and the larger community.  A few these initiatives/resources are listed below:
