7:00 PM Board of Education Meeting
On Tuesday, September 18th, Future Ready Schools NJ (FRS-NJ) notified the Chester School District that all 3 of our schools earned Bronze level certification under the Future Ready Schools NJ (FRS-NJ) Certification Program. FRS-NJ, a coalition of the NJSBA, New Jersey Institute of Technology, and the New Jersey Department of Education, is designed to best prepare our students for success in the digital age by promoting skills, abilities, and capacities essential for success in college, career, and citizenship. Additionally, The FRS-NJ program enables and fosters collaboration both within and between schools and districts throughout the State of New Jersey. FRSNJ is based on the national Future Ready Framework, developed by the Alliance for Excellent Education.
This is an enormous achievement, and is a direct result of our talented staff who participated in the 8 month process. Attaining Bronze level status is the first step of many, as we look towards achieving silver and gold in the future. Stakeholders representing Black River Middle School, Bragg Elementary School, and Dickerson Elementary School should be very proud of this unique accomplishment. The Chester School District will be recognized at the New Jersey School Boards Conference in Atlantic City, NJ in October.
