NJDOE seeks community input on School Performance Reports
June 2016
TO:                  Members of School Community
FROM:            Paula Valenti, Ed.D.
SUBJECT:      Community Input Requested on School Performance Reports
The New Jersey Department of Education is asking for your input into the kind of public school information that you would like reported annually. This is your opportunity to tell the state exactly what you want to see in the School Performance Reports (formerly called the School Report Cards) to ensure that you have access to information that can help you determine the quality of your local public schools. 
You are asked to spend approximately five minutes to complete the survey by way of the link below. The survey is entirely voluntary and anonymous. It will only ask for general demographic and school information so the Department of Education can ensure it is getting a representative sample from all parts of the state.
The survey can be found online at:
The survey is one way the Department of Education is reaching out to communities to gain further insight about how New Jersey can continually improve its public reporting about the schools. If you have any questions or comments about this topic, contact the Department of Education at
Thank you for your sharing your insights and suggestions to help improve New Jersey’s School Performance Reports.

Glen Rock School District designated “High Performing” by NJDOE
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paula Valenti has received notice from the NJDOE that Glen Rock has been designated a “High Performing District” with regards to NJQSAC. As such, the district is eligible to submit an equivalency application through which it may waive completion of an extensive District Performance Review and monitoring by the state.

QSAC, New Jersey’s Quality Single Accountability Continuum, is the Department of Education’s monitoring and evaluation system for evaluating public school districts to determine the degree to which a thorough and efficient education is being provided. QSAC is based on five key elements of effective school districts: Instruction & Program, Operations, Governance, Fiscal and Personnel. Districts that have satisfied 80-100 percent of the quality performance indicators in each of these areas may submit a Statement of Assurance documenting they remain high performing, in lieu of receiving a full QSAC review every three years. At the regular meeting of the Glen Rock Board of Education on Monday, Dec. 21, the BOE will be voting on the recommendation of Superintendent Valenti to submit the Equivalency Application to the Executive County Superintendent to extend the district’s QSAC certification as a high performing district for an additional three years, i.e. through the 2017-18 school year.
