Did Your School Make the Grade?
State sends home report cards for every school in New Jersey.
New Jersey public schools received their report cards Thursday from the state of New Jersey. The reports show how the schools measure up and provide breakdowns in a myriad of categories, including instructional time, class size, attendance, teacher degree level and computer use.
New Jersey’s annual School Report Card was released by the Christie administration more than two months later than ever before. The delays have been many, largely blamed by the administration on new data being collected on graduation rates, NJ Spotlight reports.
NJ Spotlight, an online news service providing insight and information on issues critical to New Jersey, has posted interactive charts on student achievement for each school. Find it on the NJ Spotlight site here.
The Report Card provides an abundance of useful information, from class sizes in each grade to the percent of students with access to the Internet (at least on school computers) to the spending per pupil in a number of categories.
