Hanover Park Celebrates School Board Appreciation Month


EAST HANOVER, NJ- Hanover Park Regional High School District joins the New Jersey School Boards Association in celebrating January 2017 as School Board Appreciation Month. This is designated as a time when all residents across the state can acknowledged the contributions of their local board members.

The first public high school was established in Boston in 1820 and that means there has been 197 years of public education in this country. New Jersey has grown exponentially in the last two centuries and the state currently has 581 local school boards overseeing elementary, middle and high school level educational programs. It is the job of the local boards of education to determine the educational goals of their school district and to provide the necessary resources to meet the various needs of the 1.4 million children in pre-kindergarten to 12th grade in the state.

“The Hanover Park Regional High School District Board of Education embraces the goal of high-quality education for all New Jersey public school students,” said Hanover Park Superintendent, Carol Grossi.

This dedication to high-quality education is what brings all board of education members together. Local school board members are not paid for their services to the district and use their own time to act as advocates for the students. They work alongside the administrators, teachers and parents to provide an accountability to the public. They communicate the needs of the school to the public and convey the public’s expectations to the administrators who oversee the public’s education.

It is partially due to the hard work of the local boards of education that New Jersey schools rank among the best in the country according to the National Assessment of Education Progress scores.

“The Hanover Park Regional High School District Board of Education does hereby recognize the services of local school board members throughout New Jersey as we join communities statewide in observing January 2017 as School Board Recognition Month;” said Grossi, reading the resolution at the recent board of education meeting, “and be it further resolved that the Hanover Park High School District Board of Education urges all New Jersey citizens to work with their local boards of education and public school staffs toward the advancement of our children’s education.”
