This document presents a checklist of activities to be performed by local New Jersey boards of education in the six-step process of complying with recent directives from the state board of education. These directives were issued in response to legislation clarifying the intent of the state constitution's requirement for provision of "thorough and efficient" (T & E) education. The required five-year T & E cycle is outlined on a master calendar. The document does not describe, analyze, or provide techniques for accomplishing the activities listed, leaving these interpretive matters to the local boards. An appendix provides reprints of official forms to be used in reporting to the state, as well as an abstract of the Commissioner of Education's memorandum on T & E obligations for 1976-77. (PGD)
