District Goals


STRATEGIC GOALS 2013-2018

The Piscataway School community will provide every child an education that ensures that he or she can pursue post-secondary education without the need for remedial course work.  This education will prepare him or her to succeed in our diverse society.

District support services, meaning all services outside the academic core, will be delivered on time and within budget, with 95% of our school based customers rating our service as satisfactory, including 50% rating service as excellent.

Despite dwindling resources, the Piscataway Board of Education will work to overcome the economic, political and social challenges facing our district and strive to ensure that funding and facilities are available to achieve our other goals.

DISTRICT 2016-2017 ANNUAL GOALS

1.  Continue to develop innovative Administrative Leaders who reflect the District's vision through ongoing mentoring, professional development, and implementation of administrative best practices.

2.  Continue to implement the Jump Ahead and Math Potential programs developed in 2015-16, evaluate their effectiveness, and introduce similar support in Language Arts to inspire our students to reach their full potential.

3.  Conduct a District-wide needs assessment of the infrastructure, resources, professional development, and curriculum required to provide continuity and consistency in technology-based learning in all content areas and across grade levels. Prepare an action plan addressing continuity and consistency for implementation in the 2017-18 school year.

4.  Present final proposal for improvements to District athletic facilities and prepare second question for voter approval.

2.  Communicate:  The Board will improve communication:

  • With the Community by actively seeking Community feedback on the District’s progress, goals and philosophy.
  • With the Government by establishing an ongoing dialogue with local, state and federal governing bodies on issues affecting public education.
  • With local businesses, groups and organizations by seeking to promote partnerships that can benefit the education of our children.
  • By its members through increased Liaison attendance at school events, activities and meetings, and increased Board member presence at District events and activities. 

3.  Unite The Board will continue to foster unity throughout our diverse Community by supporting established Board initiatives, such as PiscatawayREADS, continuing to grow new initiatives, such as YOU…I…WE Inspire, and encouraging participation in activities that bring all parts of our Community together as a whole.

4.  Inspire:  The Board will actively seek to promote a culture of inspiration throughout our District and among our Board.  The Board will begin the process of crafting a District Mission Statement reflecting our desire to promote this culture of inspiration.
