The Legal Department of the New Jersey School Boards Association is pleased to make available on its Web site this updated Volume II of the Index to New Jersey School Law Decisions (2002). We hope this electronic document, with its enhanced searching capability, will serve as a useful research tool for school board attorneys, school administrators and school board members. (PLEASE NOTE: This document is still a work in progress document. If you have any difficulties or concerns, please contact Cindy Stanhope at (609) 278-5454 or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
This updated Volume II of the Index to New Jersey School Law Decisions (1990 � June 1998) supercedes the 2001 and 1998 volumes. It supplements the 1998 Volume I of the Index to New Jersey School Law Decisions (1938-89). It is supplemented by Volume III, Supplemental Index to New Jersey School Law Decisions, which contains the most recent opinions of the Commissioner and the State Board (July 1998 forward). All of these Volumes of the Index are available on the NJSBA website (www.njsba.org).
Volume II of the Index includes:
Unpublished school law decisions of the Commissioner of Education and State Board of Education from 1990 through June 1998, as made available to NJSBA by the New Jersey Department of Education. The unpublished decisions contain a reference to the slip opinions by year and date. For example: (97:Nov. 17, O�Neal)
Appellate history of reported and unreported Commissioner and State Board decisions, as described above (through June 1998; selected cases may include history subsequent to June 1998)
Selected New Jersey Appellate Division and Supreme Court decisions (reported and unreported) 1990 through June 1998, involving relevant education issues
Also, users should recognize that the Index is not intended as a comprehensive research tool for state or federal judicial decisions. Rather, NJSBA legal staff has exercised discretion in selecting court decisions that it believes will be of interest to readers of the Index. Further, neither decisions of the Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC) nor special education decisions of the New Jersey Office of Administrative Law, or appeals therefrom are included. Persons wishing more information about PERC decisions should consult the NJSBA publication, Index and Analysis of PERC Decisions.
