Common Core Education Standards to be Discussed at May 13 Meeting

May 6, 2014 at 6:56 AM

MILLBURN, NJ - Families wondering how the implementation of Common Core standards will change local schools and impact  students have been invited to attend “The Future of Education for Students: A Town Hall,” on May 13 at 7:30 p.m. at the Bauer Community Center in Taylor Park.

The adoption of the Common Core in New Jersey has been a source of controversy.  This information session, presented by a group called “Preserve Our Schools,” may help parents better understand the implications of the impending changes to the educational system.

The featured speaker at the meeting will be Dr. Joseph Ricca, EdD, Superintendent of the Elmsford Union Free School District located in Westchester County, New York.  He will be discussing the changes and will address questions from attendees.   Dr. Ricca is known for his expertise in developing programs for a positive climate and culture in schools and character education.  He has given presentations to educators across the United States, assisted in training future educators and community members. In 2013, he was named Citizen of the Year by the New Jersey Psychological Association for his work promoting strong community relationships to support students. Dr. Ricca holds a B.S. from Seton Hall University, a M.Ed. from Harvard University, a M.A. in Educational Administration from Caldwell College, and an Ed.D. from Walden University.

The session is open to residents of Millburn and the surrounding communities.  Street parking is available surrounding the park.
