The Ewing Township School District recently underwent a comprehensive audit conducted by the state Department of Education.
The New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum (NJQSAC) review involves a team of state monitors evaluating the district in five key areas: Instruction and Program, Fiscal Management, Governance, Operations and Personnel. The process involves school and site visits and an analysis of efficacy in standards classified as District Performance Reviews. These standards measure all aspects of school district management, ranging from the instruction taking place in the classroom to the functioning of the business and Human Resources offices.
A QSAC steering committee made up of administrators and teachers from around the district led the Ewing Schools' preparation and presentations for this audit. Anthony Messina served as the Board of Education member representative during this process.
“I am pleased to inform you that your district has satisfied at least 80% of the weighted indicators in each of the five areas of the NJQSAC review process and has been designated as “high performing,” DOE Acting Director Paula Bloom wrote. “Congratulations on this accomplishment.”
“I would like to thank the members of the steering committee for all their work and efforts with regard to preparing for this rigorous audit,” Superintendent Michael Nitti stated. “The QSAC process confirmed what we knew, that we have skilled and hard-working professionals throughout our district who are dedicated to providing our students the opportunity to achieve in a positive and well-run educational environment."
