The New Jersey School Board Association’s Delegate Assembly, held each year in May and November, will take place on Saturday Nov. 21 at the Wyndham Princeton Forrestal Hotel & Conference Center in Plainsboro.
On the agenda are reports by NJSBA President Harry J. Delgado and Marie S. Bilik, executive director of the Association. Any emergency resolutions approved between now and Nov. 21 would be discussed and voted upon.
Immediately following the Delegate Assembly, there will be a special legislative program, “Looking to the Lame Duck Session and Beyond.” The panelists will include legislative and political party leaders, who will discuss key proposals before the Senate and Assembly. They will also focus on how—and if—their caucuses can work together, and with the new governor, in a spirit of bi-partisan cooperation. The discussion will be moderated by Michael Aron, senior political correspondent for New Jersey Network News.
NJSBA reminds all school boards that decisions made by each Delegate Assembly are followed by action which often results in the introduction of legislation, stopping undesirable legislation or new State Board of Education policies. The Delegate Assembly gives local school boards the opportunity for input before these far-reaching statewide policy decisions are made. Policies adopted by the Delegate Assemblies are codified in NJSBA’s Manual of Positions and Policies on Education.
