Each summer, the Ewing Township Board of Education and the administration meet in a retreat setting to review the state of the district, discuss the progress made on the previous year's Board goals, and shape new goals for the upcoming school year in a collaborative and collegial manner.
“This retreat gives us the opportunity to reflect upon the previous school year and work with the Board to set new goals that are emblematic of our mission and vision,” Superintendent Mike Nitti commented.
For 2015-16, the Board and the administration have established one encompassing goal for each of the major school district areas of: Personnel, Operations, Governance, Curriculum and Instruction and Fiscal Management. Following are the 2015-16 Board of Education goals.
Goal 1: Personnel Embrace a cohesive approach to professional development which results in training and mentoring that advances staff members who are well prepared to handle the unique challenges of a diverse school district.
Goal 2: Operations Working within the three broad categories of personnel, technology and facilities, continue to develop and promote strategies and innovations which result in safe and secure schools for our students.
Goal 3: Governance Explore approaches to governance operations which improve the way the Board of Education organizes and transmits information, communicates issues and conducts meetings.
Goal 4: Curriculum/Instruction Enhance the district’s comprehensive instructional program by increasing technology utilization as an instructional tool to promote student learning and achievement.
Goal 5: Fiscal Management Advance the district’s efforts with regard to ‘green’ initiatives, energy-saving endeavors, and transportation efficiency studies to promote sustainability and cost-savings.
