STUDENT RECOGNITIONS
 
Pillars of Character – HALLWAY GRADE-LEVEL CHARACTER TRAITS
The monthly student recognition awards are based upon character traits and grade-level themes.  Teachers nominate their students and there are 5 awards per month, one per grade level, based upon the grade-level theme.  Students receive their certificate, a group photo, and the teacher recommendation form. Hallways are labeled with banners identifying the grade-level theme.  These themes continue throughout the grade-level classroom lessons, in addition to being reinforced during classroom presentations by the Guidance Counselor.  
There is also a monthly Citizen, Leader, and Principal Award.

The New Jersey Department of Education is responsible for a variety of functions and services which include certification of teachers and administrators; application to be an approved provider; purchasing; offering grant opportunities; and various other services.
 

The Office of State Assessments (OSA) coordinates the development and implementation of New Jersey's statewide assessment program, which is designed to measure student attainment of the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, and the Common Core State Standards.  The OSA works collaboratively, within the department, and with school districts, to collect and report information about student academic achievement in order to inform instruction, increase student learning, and help parents and the public assess the effectiveness of their schools.

Northfield Community School NJASK Parent Information Meeting

2011-2012
 

The Federal Legislation No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) requires that each state administer annual standards-based assessments to students in grades 3 through 8, and at least once in high school.  Federal expectation is that each state will provide tests that are grounded in rigorous state and national content standards and that assess student achievement in language arts literacy, mathematics and, at three benchmark grade levels, science.
 

The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards were first adopted by the State Board of Education in 1996.  The standards describe what students should know and be able to do upon completion of a thirteen-year public education and provide local school districts with clear and specific benchmarks for student achievement in nine content areas.  The Common Core State Standards are national standards that New Jersey has adopted in the content areas of Mathematics and Language Arts.
 

The No Child Left behind Act (NCLB) of 2001 was signed into law on January 8, 2002 by President Bush.  The Act represents the President's education reform plan and contains the most sweeping changes to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) since it was enacted in 1965.  NCLB changes the federal government's role in K-12 education by focusing on school success as measured by student achievement.  The Act also contains the President's four basic education reform principles:

» stronger accountability for results,
» increased flexibility and local control,
» expanded options for parents, and
» an emphasis on teaching methods that have been
   proven to work.

 

The New Jersey Department of Education provides a list of technology tools and ideas for use in the classroom, and which are also included in the Content Standards under Classroom Application Documents and/or Unit/Lesson Plan exemplars.  Technology information, features, and classroom applications, and examples of how the technology tool might be used to support and enhance teaching and learning, can be located on this site.
