Board Announcements
At its public meeting on June 9, the Glen Rock Board of Education voted to keep the high school tennis courts unlocked from dawn to dusk, rather than charge residents a usage fee. Effective immediately, the courts will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. The board may revisit this decision at a later date. Residents are asked to keep in mind that use of the courts will be restricted during school hours, student team play and practice times, and during summer camps run by the community school.  Residents are reminded that the courts are intended for tennis play only; no dogs, skateboards, bicycles, strollers or roller skates are permitted. Court use is on a first-come basis, and residents are asked to limit play time to one hour if others are waiting.

Barbara Steuert named 'Master Board Member'

Glen Rock Board of Education member Barbara Steuert was one of 68 trustees from across the state to earn the designation of Master Board Member through the New Jersey School Board Association’s Board Member Academy. To achieve the rank of Master Board Member, a person must first obtain the designation of Certificated Board Member and then earn 20 additional credits. The training addresses the issues of leadership, school/community relations, effective meetings, strategic planning, group dynamics, board member ethics, school finance, labor relations and school law. Steuert (at left) is congratulated by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Paula Valenti on her achievement as a member of the NJSBA’s “Class of 2014.” Steuert was first elected to the BOE in 1987 and has served a number of terms as both president and vice president.

Community Planning Jan. 25, 2014
On Jan. 25, 2014, the Glen Rock Board of Education hosted a Community Planning meeting to provide for stakeholder input into the district's planning for the next three years. A representative cross-section of community members shared their insights and ideas for the future of the school district. Through a series of small and large group activities these participants clarified and updated the district's mission statement; defined the foundational beliefs of the district; identified goal areas in support of the mission; and offered strategies that will lead to the achievement of those goals. The meeting was facilitated by Sousa & Stern Educational Consultants. Please click here for a copy of their follow-up presentation to the BOE on March 24.
