PATERSON, NJ  – Superintendent of Schools Eileen F. Shafer will be meeting with the district’s high school seniors the week of May 12, she announced Sunday. Though, keeping with social distancing guidelines, those meetings will take place virtually.

Shafer will hold a similar series of online forums for parents and guardians the following week.

Shafer said that the purpose of the meetings is to provide information about academic concerns including grading, graduation requirements, credit recovery and college acceptances. Information will also be provided about many senior year rites of passage in the context of schools being closed due to COVID-19 including graduation ceremonies, publication of yearbooks, and proms.
