Educational Initiatives

The Education Specialist provides school district with technical assistance in the following areas:

  • Keeps informed as to the management, methods of instruction and discipline and the courses of study and textbooks in use, the condition of the school libraries, and the condition of the real and personal property, particularly in respect to the construction, heating, ventilation and lighting of school buildings, in the local district, and make recommendation in connection therewith.
  • Every three years, through the NJQSAC, the county office staff conducts an in-depth, on-site monitoring of each school district to determine whether they are meeting state standards for certification.  They are also observing to ensure that the schools are operating in accordance with state education law and regulation.
  • Annual test results are examined to determine whether schools and districts are meeting state testing standards and adequate yearly progress.
  • Review and process a variety of grants for accuracy and compliance.  These grants provide essential funding for programs that are operated by the local school districts.
