This diverse one-school district has become a dynamically interconnected community hub, where student achievement, staff participation, and parent involvement combine to result in the ultimate success of all students.

Presented at NJSBA’s Centennial Workshop 2014, this program has forged an all-stakeholders-together mentality of leadership and a school environment that encompasses a “WOW!” factor.

The culture of collaboration and excellence flows down to the kids.

The “one size does not fit all” approach incorporates key elements, which are interwoven with state mandates to create a “more than positive” school climate. The district strives for transformational leadership, and creates a vision where everyone can excel.
