Park Ridge School District's Mission Statement

The  Park  Ridge  School  District  is  committed  to  the  mission  of  educating  all  students  to  achieve  the  New  Jersey  Core  Curriculum  content  Standards  at  all  grade  levels.   The  district  will  nurture  all  students  to  be  life long  learners,  ethical  and  responsible  citizens,  and  independent,  productive  members  of  a  global  society.

New Jersey’s 2009 Core Curriculum Content Standards address two critical education priorities:
1.    Alignment with the knowledge and skills needed by all students for post-secondary opportunities.
2.    A framework for teaching and learning that responds to the needs of 21st-century digital learners by incorporating the 'new literacies' required in an innovation economy: the ability to effectively access, evaluate, and synthesize vast amounts of information; to apply knowledge and skills to personal, workplace, and global challenges; to work collaboratively in cross-cultural settings; to solve problems creatively; and to act ethically as citizens of the world community.
These 21st-century student outcomes require a deeper understanding of academic content at much higher levels than ever before. The revised standards facilitate this in-depth learning in all content areas through the systematic and transparent integration of 21st-century knowledge, skills, and themes; global perspectives; cross content connections; and technology.  (NJ DOE)

Achieve NJ
ACHIEVE NJ

Based on the timeline established in the TEACHNJ law, AchieveNJ is being implemented statewide in the 2013–14 school year. The system builds on the findings of the 2010–11 Educator Effectiveness Task Force, as well as local innovation and lessons learned from the pilot programs underway since 2011. In response to New Jersey educators, the Department expanded the pilots in SY12–13 to a total of 30 districts and incorporated principal evaluations. Feedback from the pilots and the state Evaluation Pilot Advisory Committee helped shape the draft regulations that the Department proposed on March 6, 2013.

EE4NJ
New Jersey is currently engaged in a process to reform the teacher and principal evaluation system.  This initiative is known as Excellent Educators for New Jersey or EE4NJ.  During the 2011-2012 school year, eleven school districts and nineteen additional schools participated in the first year of the pilot program.   During 2012-2013 school year, ten districts are participating in the second year of the teacher evaluation pilot program and fourteen districts are participating in the first year of the principal evaluation pilot program.   All other districts in New Jersey, including Park Ridge Schools, are involved in adopting a teacher evaluation model for implementation in the 2013-14 school year, piloting and building capacity for that model.   All teachers have to be trained on the new model by June 30, 2013.   Additional State regulations are due for adoption by NJDOE in March 2013.

We have formed a district EE4NJ committee and a District Evaluation Advisory Committee (DEAC).
