New Jersey School Boards Association delegates participating in the semiannual Delegate Assembly on Saturday, Nov. 20, will get a digital copy of the NJSBA Delegate Assembly Handbook, but NJSBA understands some members may prefer a hard copy. To receive one, you must submit a request by Thursday, Oct. 21.

Delegate Assembly registrants will receive a confirmation email that will include an NJSBA Delegate Assembly Handbook request form, which preregistered delegates, alternates and other board members serving as a delegate must submit by the deadline to get their paper copy.

The NJSBA Delegate Assembly Handbook will not automatically be mailed to registrants. It will only be sent to those who request a hard copy by the deadline.

The Delegate Assembly, which is held twice a year to set policies that determine NJSBA’s position on educational issues and establish bylaws that govern its operations, will be held through NJSBA’s official virtual conference platform, Swoogo. Each board of education in the state is entitled to one voting delegate.

The tentative agenda includes a report from NJSBA President Irene LeFebvre and NJSBA Executive Director Dr. Lawrence S. Feinsod. Also on the agenda is the sunset review of Sections 3000 (Business and Noninstructional Operations) and 4000 (Instructional and Support Personnel) of the NJSBA Manual of Positions and Policies on Education. The Association did not receive any resolutions from local boards of education prior to the Sept. 16, 2021, submission deadline.

All meeting materials, including the handbook, will be placed on the NJSBA Delegate Assembly webpage and the Swoogo conference platform prior to the meeting.
