The New Jersey Department of Education today released the 2009 School Report Cards for all regular public schools and charter schools in the state. According to the press release from the Dept of Education, "The report cards are public accountability documents that are intended to enable members of the public to measure the yearly progress of their local schools.
"The annual reports contain detailed statistical profiles of every school in the areas of school environment, student information, student performance indicators, staff information and district and charter financial information."
Established by legislation in 1995, the report cards are produced for all elementary and secondary schools, as well as vocational schools, special education schools, charter schools, and special services school districts.
