ROXDBURY, NJ - As a progressive and cutting-edge district, Roxbury Township Public Schools take great pride in the continuous reflection of our vision and the educational experiences we provide for our children. This is evident in the collaborative way in which the Roxbury Board of Education and District Administration develop annual goals and support the professional growth of staff in order to achieve them.
While each initiative needs a champion to forward it, there must also be an end goal or destination. That’s where a Portrait of a Graduate comes in.
A Portrait of a Graduate is a process where all community stakeholders participate in identifying the essential skills, personal attributes and future-ready attitudes we hold in high regard and expect every graduate to acquire during his/her time in the Roxbury Schools.
The Portrait of a Graduate design will serve as our beacon or destination. The process will allow the community to have a voice in defining the skills, abilities, mindsets and goals for our graduating seniors. It will also serve as the “why” that drives decisions in framing future initiatives, processes and strategies.Moreover, it will be the destination when we create a Strategic Plan in the future.
In the coming months, the Roxbury Township Public Schools will embark on the process of developing a Portrait of a Graduate. We hope you will join us on Wednesday, Oct. 10, Tuesday, Dec. 4 and Thursday, Feb. 13 in the Lincoln/Roosevelt School Auditorium at 34 N. Hillside Ave.in Succasunna at 7 p.m.
We are looking forward to traveling this path with you and designing a Portrait of a Graduate that captures and embodies the spirit, abilities, and competencies of our graduating Gaels.
