Our District spends considerable financial and personnel resources collecting data to accommodate burdensome unfunded mandates with respect to PARCC and teacher evaluation. The Raising expectations team will work tirelessly with our Admin to make sure that our students receive the maximum benefit from our efforts to better prepare them for their choices in the future.
Bloomfield is a wonderful place to live and work as evidenced by the increased local development. All healthy communities have growth spurts just like our students do. Our BOE must continue to build and foster successful relationships with partners such as: Bloomfield College, Montclair State and our Town Council.
COMMITMENT TO PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
The backbone of any successful school district is the quality of its employees. With new unfunded mandates and regulations, a yearly occurrence, our BOE must stay the course on professional development while transitioning to an in-house approach that will improve efficiency in the long run.
