High Performing School

Posted by Scott Larkin on 1/4/2019 10:00:00 AM

At last night's public meeting, the New Hanover Township School District's Board of Education accepted the New Jersey Department of Education's review scores. Known as NJQSAC (New Jersey Quality Single Accountiblity Continuum), this monitoring system evaluates school districts in the areas of Instruction and Program, Fiscal Management, Governance, Operations, and Personnel. In order to be classified as a high performing, districts must achieve a score of at least 80% in each of the five indicators. I am proud to announce that New Hanover Township School has earned this designation. As always, success at NHTS is not a destination, but a benchmark. But, for a moment, we should all pause to enjoy this tremendous accomplishment. Numbers can never fully define who we are as a community. They don't evaluate love, caring, kindness, or unity. But, they do quantify years of hardwork. I want to thank all who have profoundly contributed to this accomplishment: staff, families, consultants, board members, the Department of Education, and our students. For now, we will celebrate, continue great work, and enjoy the title "high performing."
