HASBROUCK HEIGHTS, NJ - Hasbrouck Heights Superintendent of Schools Dr. Matthew Helfant as part of his Superintendent's Report during May's Board of Education meeting announced that the school district passed its QSAC review and will be moving ahead with construction at Depken Field.

Helfant reported that the district had passed all parts of the New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum. The district has received 100% on four of the five sections, Personnel, Governance, Operations, and Fiscal Training. It received an 89% in Instruction and Program. He said that there were "good scores overall" noting "it's been a long journey." When asked about the Instruction and Program score, he explained that "the subgroups need to show improvement," specially mentioning attendance.

After the meeting Helfant told TAPinto that the evaluators had visited the district in late January for two days. One day was a walk through of the grounds and facilities, and one day was a desk audit. He said that two to three months earlier the district needed to submit curriculum, reports, budgets, and other paperwork for review.

During the BOE meeting, Helfant said that the district is moving ahead with replacing Depken Field. He noted that it will begin replacing the track, football field and practice field because the governor has now allowed non-essential construction to begin again. He also explained that the field had come to the end of its lifespan, which he noted in his presentation to the Mayor and Council in December 2019.
