WARREN, NJ - The Warren Township Board of Education held its last meeting virtually, with only Superintendent Dr. Matthew Mingle in the Board office.
Discussion focused on the districts distance learning during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All in all, the district is doing well. Mingle said about 80 percent of staff members have indicated they are "doing fine" on a daily survey. The other 20 percent indicated either “I'm stressed, but I'm OK," or “I need support."
Mingle said that they are working on incorporating more face-to-face instruction, taking into consideration media releases, internet access and supervision. “What happens if someone records that Zoom call, for example, and posts it somewhere," he said.
Derek Ressa, Director of Special Services, is working with the legal team and the county on ways to support students remotely.
The earliest reopening date for New Jersey schools, according to Gov. Phil Murphy, will be Monday, April 20.
