DENVILLE, NJ – Dr. Sandra Cullis, assistant superintendent for curriculum instruction and assessment of the Denville Township School District, presented Future Ready Schools New Jersey certificates and banners to Lakeview Elementary School, Riverview Elementary School and Valleyview Middle School during the Board of Education’s meeting on Mon, Oct 28. Each school earned Bronze Tier Certification.

According to its website, Future Ready Schools New Jersey is a certification program that provides direction, guidance, support and connections to resources for New Jersey schools and districts that are dedicated to best preparing their students for success in the digital age. The organization awards certification based on future readiness indicators that fall under three basic categories: leadership, education and classroom practices, and technology support and services. Vying schools must provide evidence that substantiates all three categories.

“We [collected] over 450 pieces of data for this award,” stated Cullis. “It was a very impressive amount of work, and I’m so very proud of our team.”
