PREVIEW OF ANNUAL
May 20, 2006
NJSBA reminds all school boards that decisions made by each Delegate Assembly are followed by strenuous action, which often results in the introduction of legislation, the stopping of undesirable legislation or new state board of education regulations. The Delegate Assemblies give local school boards the opportunity for input before these far-reaching statewide policy decisions are made. Therefore, we urge boards to review the proposed resolution so that their delegates are familiar with the issues. Policies adopted by the Delegate Assemblies are codified in NJSBA’s Manual of Policies and Positions on Education.
