Two local school board members have been selected to serve on a statewide committee appointed to study and make recommendations on the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.
Tabernacle school board member John Bulina, the immediate past president of the New Jersey School Boards Association; and Dominick Miletta, Pittsgrove Township school board president and vice president of the Salem County School Boards Association; were nominated by NJSBA, and selected for the state panel.
The 24-member Standards Review Committee will review the Core Curriculum Content Standards in English language arts and mathematics to develop higher standards that reflect the educational needs and goals of New Jersey communities. This committee will monitor the progress of subcommittees, ensure alignment of content across grade levels and subjects, and make final recommendations to the State Board of Education (NJSBOE).
Nominees for the position had to submit a resume and “statement of interest.” Other committee members include teachers, parents, academics and others. In addition, three subcommittees will study English, math and, separately, primary grades (K-2) standards.
Further information about the process is available on the New Jersey Department of Education website.
