Governor Christie has made school choice, charter schools, tenure reform, teacher evaluations, and school funding all issues that he plans to address this year. Change in education seems almost certain. What change will boards of education and school districts embrace? What change will boards of education and school districts oppose? NJSBA President Ray Wiss will join host Ray Pinney as they discuss the issues being debated at the state level. Feel free to join in on the conversation too by calling in with your questions.
Election Day is almost here and soon many people will go from being a school board candidate to a school board member. Once elected what should the new board member be prepared for? What is your legal responsibility? How do you get information to make informed decisions? What is the relationship between the board and the superintendent? Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these and other issues about being a newly elected board member with Michael Kaleber, NJSBA Legal Department and Terri Lewis, NJSBA Field Service Representative. If you are a school board candidate this program will help you be prepared for your first meeting.
Special Education has consistently been a difficult challenge for school districts, both programmatically and financially. In times when financial resources are limited yet academic expectations high, it can sometimes split a community.
To identify ways to control cost, while preserving the quality of special education, NJSBA created the Special Education Task Force in January 2013. The task force spent over a year, consulting with more than 25 experts in special education and reviewing the literature on the delivery and financing of special education services, with a special focus on academic achievement.
The resulting report of the Special Education Task Force, “Special Education: A Service, Not a Place,” includes recommendations for strategies to improve delivery of services and control costs. Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses the report’s findings with the task force chair Dr. Gerald Vernotica, along with task force members Michael Lee and Irene LeFebvre.
Acting Commissioner of Education David Hespe has been in the position less than a year, but he has already taken an aggressive stance to inform the public about the Common Core State Standards in New Jersey. Acting Commissioner Hespe brings a wealth of experience to his post, having served as a district superintendent, college president, and as commissioner of education previously. These experiences have made him a strong advocate for academic standards. Please join host Ray Pinney as he and Acting Commissioner Hespe discuss the department’s implementation of the academic standards and the response to some of the myths and misunderstandings about the Common Core.
Governor Christie will be making his state budget address on February 21st and in addition his education reform agenda is being discussed in the statehouse. What is the impact of the state budget on New Jersey’s school districts? Will tenure reform move in this legislative session? What school choice issues will move if any this session? What are the thoughts of two of the leading education groups in New Jersey one representing the school boards and the other the teachers. Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these issues NJSBA Director of Governmental Relations Michael Vrancik and NJEA Director of Government Relations Ginger Gold Schnitzer.
State standards and standardized tests are not new concepts and have been part of New Jersey’s education landscape for some time. However there have been recent concerns raised by some community members and educators about Common Core State Standards and PARCC. Why do we need standards and assessment? If we do need them, are the Common Core and PARCC the appropriate standards and assessment? What should districts do to help prepare their students to succeed? Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these questions and others with Dr. Tracey Severns, the director of student performance at the Mount Olive School District and former chief academic officer for the New Jersey Department of Education.
As public officials, school board members are indemnified for many actions they take as school board members. Why are school board members indemnified? Are there times when they are not protected or indemnified? Can boards of education censure their own members? What occurs if a board member violates the Code of Ethics for School Board Members? Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these and other issues with Joseph Roselle, an attorney who specializes in school law with Schenck, Price, Smith & King, LLP.

This year for the second time in New Jersey history we will be electing candidates to the local Boards of education in a November election. Yet it does not matter much when the election is held because there is always a difference between being a school board candidate and a school board member. Once elected what should the new board member be prepared for? What is your legal responsibility? How do you get information to make informed decisions? What is the relationship between the board and the superintendent? Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses these and other issues about being a newly elected board member with Donna Kaye NJSBA Legal Department, Terri Lewis, NJSBA Field Service Representative, and Marcia Lavigne NJSBA County Activities Coordinator. If you are a school board candidate this program will help you be prepared for your first meeting.
Since the 1920’s teacher tenure has been part of New Jersey’s education system and changed only slight until August of 2012 when TEACH-NJ was signed into law. This law dramatically changed the process for acquiring tenure as well as how tenure charges are filed. While most school administrators and school board members support the reform they need to be aware of the provisions of the law and its impact on their personnel decisions. Please join host Ray Pinney as he discusses legal issues in teacher tenure with school board attorney John Geppert, Jr. of the law firm of Schwartz, Simon, Edelstein and Celso.
