The New Jersey Department of Education is asking for your input into the kind of public school information that you would like reported annually. This is your opportunity to tell the state exactly what you want to see in the School Performance Reports (formerly called the School Report Cards) to ensure that you have access to information that can help you determine the quality of your local public schools. You are asked to spend approximately five minutes to complete the survey by way of the link below. The survey is entirely voluntary and anonymous. It will only ask for general demographic and school information so the Department of Education can ensure it is getting a representative sample from all parts of the state.
The Sea Girt Elementary School faculty and administration has worked together to develop summer enrichment assignments for our rising third through eighth graders. We hope to help keep your child’s mind sharp during the long summer season with assignments and resources to complete in both reading and mathematics. All young people experience learning loss when they do not engage in educational activities during the summer. “Research spanning 100 years shows that students typically score lower on standardized tests at the end of summer vacation than they do on the same tests at the beginning of the summer” (Downey et al, 2004). We have structured activities for both reading and mathematics for our rising kindergarten through eighth grade students. Teachers have discussed the assignments with the students. Letters outlining exactly what the children need to do were sent home and are posted on our school website.
The School Performance Reports Seeks To: Focus attention on metrics that are indicative of college and career readiness. Benchmark a school's performance against other peer schools that are educating similar students, against statewide outcomes, and against state targets to illuminate and build upon a school's strengths and identify areas for improvement. Improve educational outcomes for students by providing both longitudinal and growth data so that progress can be measured as part of an individual school's efforts to engage in continuous improvement.
Sea Girt Elementary School is proud to be recognized by the Department of Education for achieving superior standards of academic excellence as a Blue Ribbon School District. The National Blue Ribbon School award affirms the hard work of students, educators, families, and communities in creating safe and welcoming schools where students master challenging content. The National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing an entry or flying overhead is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning.
