What's ahead for NJ education?

New Jersey Commissioner of Education Bret Schundler has agreed to be the keynote speaker at the Garden State Coalition of Schools' "Summit @ Summit" general meeting on March 2. The public is invited to come hear about what's going on in Trenton and how the changes will affect districts like Ridgewood. This is a great opportunity to stay ahead of the curve and gather valuable insights for local decision making.

In addition to Mr. Schundler, confirmed attendees include:
Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean, Jr.
Assembly Minority Conference Leader Jon Bramnick
Assembly Health & Senior Services Committee member Nancy Munoz
Assembly Education Committee member Mila Jasey

Date: March 2 @ 7:30 p.m.

Administration and Board members from Ridgewood will be attending, and we'll keep you updated on the news we get. There may be Ridgewood parents arranging carpools - contact your HSA or let me know if you're interested.
