As New Jersey’s board members know, summer means more than weekends at the shore and ice cream cones on a warm evening. Summer – when local board members and state lawmakers usually have a lighter schedule – is when NJSBA organizes meetings for board members to meet with legislators to discuss educational issues. Below are photos of recent meetings; a schedule for upcoming meetings appears in the following article.
