Foundations for Success

Description: Foundations for Success is designed to equip board members with the skills they need to deal with issues they face at the board table. The three programs focus on school finance, student achievement, and school law.    Fundamentals of School Finance - With resources limited, it is imperative that school board members have an understanding of school finance – where their revenue comes from, how aid is calculated, the budget process and the impact of bargaining unit contracts on the overall budget.   Board Actions that Impact Student Achievement - In recent years New Jersey has revamped state standards and increased state standardized testing to increase student achievement. Learn ways the board and superintendent can work together to keep the district focused on student achievement and preparing students for their future.    Advancements in School Law - Whether it is a new legal ruling, clarification of an existing law, or a new ethics advisory opinion, school board members should be aware of the changes in the law that affect the board of education's operations
