ROSELLE, NJ - The Roselle Board of Education held an education summit “You Talk, We Listen,” for parents on Monday evening. Board of Education members along with representatives from the library met with parents in breakout sessions to share ideas and concerns about student achievement, school safety and parent involvement.

Discussions ranged from broken sidewalks, the phone blast system versus email, to addressing “special needs” students, and more, with everyone working together to come up with ideas to work together to solve. 

All issues discussed in the groups were written down for the B.O.E. members to take back and discuss how they can work to improve the schools and solve some of the issues. 

Highlights from the summit can be viewed below.
