The New Jersey School Boards Association is now accepting entries for the 2023 School Leader Awards.

Each year, the School Leader Awards showcase creative and effective programs and practices from New Jersey schools. If your school has a new and innovative education program that addresses student learning and achievement, NJSBA wants to hear from you.

Entries must be received by 4:30 p.m., June 30.

Entries are judged on the level of innovation, how well the program addresses specific needs of the students, the relationship of the program to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards and results. Programs must be in place for two full school years to qualify (starting on or before Sept. 1, 2021). The 2023 Innovations in Special Education Award winners are not eligible.

For an entry form and information on the s process and past winners, visit the NJSBA School Leader Awards webpage.
