BLOOMFIELD, NJ--The Bloomfield School District recently underwent the State Mandated NJQSAC (The Quality Single Accountability Continuum) monitoring process. Every three years Districts in New Jersey must take part in a comprehensive review of five areas of focus. The five areas are Instruction/Program, Governance, Operations, Finance & Personnel. The process begins with the formulation of a District QSAC Review Committee which is charged with comprehensively completing a District Self-Assessment. This self-assessment is submitted to the NJDOE in advance of the scheduled on site visit, which in Bloomfield took place on January 14, 2020. The final report by the NJDOE deemed Bloomfield a “High Performing District."
Prior to the onsite visit Bloomfield was also responsible for providing digital versions of various items that fall within the criteria set forth in each of the aforementioned five categories of review. Each of the five categories has performance indicators that the district must prove they abide by on a consistent basis. Upon completion of the visit, the NJDOE representatives then review their findings and issue a report thereafter. Districts must attain an 80% pass rate in each of the five aforementioned categories. Once the district receives the final report, it must officially notify the public, place on its website and approve the report at the next scheduled BOE meeting, February 11, 2020.
