City Schools of Excellence: School Improvement Grant Program. Award Recipients.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of General Academic Education.
The names of the county, school, principal, district, and superintendent; address; phone number; grades served; and number of students are provided for each of the 50 award recipients of the City Schools of Excellence Grant Program in New Jersey. These New Jersey schools are engaging in a thorough and intensive program of schoolwide improvement. In the first year of the program, each school will form a team representing a cross-section of the community to assess the educational environment, identify needs, and produce a 2-year improvement program. In the second and third years, schools will begin to implement improvement plans focusing on characteristics of effective schools through the following: (1) strengthening instructional leadership; (2) aligning the core academic curriculum; (3) monitoring student progress; (4) enhancing home and school relations; (5) creating high teacher expectations for student achievement; and (6) creating an orderly learning climate. As these 10 high schools and 40 elementary schools and middle schools implement their programs, they will form linkages with the 17 schools that have already completed the grant phases of school improvement in the Effective Demonstration Schools Project.
