  • 2017 District Testing Report

    At the October 19, 2017 meeting of the Rochelle Park Board of Education, Mrs. Lisa Fletcher, the interim Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction, provided the Board and public with our annual District Testing Report. As the public may know, district scores have been on the rise and it is for this reason that we are no longer designated as a “focus school” by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE). The presentation may be found by clicking here. Any member of the public who has questions about the report may contact Mrs. Fletcher at lfletcher@rochellepark.org.

  • A Message from the Board of Education

    At the meeting of the Rochelle Park Board of Education on September 14, 2017, there were a number of comments and questions presented to the Board that insinuated that an affirmative action investigation that was earlier authorized by the Board involved the District’s students. Indeed, the intimation was that the investigation concerned or worse, concluded that our students were subjected to a hostile environment. Neither the claim that was investigated nor the report of the consultant involved any of the District’s students. Moreover, there has never been a claim that our students were subjected to a hostile educational environment by an employee of our District. To the contrary, our students attend school in a safe and healthy environment that allows them to excel academically and socially.

  • Focus School Status Removed!

    Dear members of the Rochelle Park community:

    It is my distinct pleasure to report to you that after years of hard work and achievement, the New Jersey Department of Education informed us today that the “Focus School” status has been removed from Midland School!

    I would like to congratulate our director of curriculum and instruction, Mrs. Cara Hurd, for leading the work in the multi-year revisions to our curriculum and our principal, Mr. Brian Cannici, for his tireless efforts in supporting best practices in our classrooms. Of course, the lion share of the credit must go to our wonderful faculty who has worked so cooperatively in supporting Cara and Brian’s efforts while delivering solid instruction to our students every day.

    Finally, I want to thank both the past and current Board of Education who bought into the vision of what needed to be changed and on how best to accomplish it. Given extremely tight budgets with which to work, resource allocation targeted to strengthening curriculum and instruction has been a primary focus. Thank you for your support of that vision, our school, our teachers, and our children. 

    Rochelle Park has much to be proud of!

    Allow me to wish you all a wonderful Fourth of July and a pleasant and fun-filled summer.

    Very sincerely yours,

     

    Geoffrey W. Zoeller, Jr., Ed.D.

    Superintendent of Schools

  • Proposed 2017-18 School District Budget 

    At the April 20, 2017 meeting of the Rochelle Park Board of Education, the administration made the formal, public presentation on the proposed 2017-18 school budget. The public who attended the 7:30 P.M. meeting were able to ask questions after the presentation was over. The PowerPoint used for that presentation may be found here.

    At the 7:30 P.M. May 4, 2017 meeting of the Board of Education, the board will again accept comments from the public on the budget as part of a formal Budget Hearing. The board will then take formal action to adopt the budget to meet the state timelines as required under law and regulation.

    We urge any members of our community who have concerns about the district’s operations and proposed 2017-18 budget to reach out to our Superintendent, Dr. Zoeller, directly at gzoeller@rochellepark.org or by phone at 201-843-3120 ext 114.

  • Revised and New School Calendars

    Dear family, staff, and community members:

    As you know, we only used two (2) of our five (5) allotted emergency closing days during the current school year. Based upon this the Board of Education took action to modify the current calendar. As a result, we will be closed on Tuesday, May 30th (the day after Memorial Day) and our last day of school will now be on Monday, June 19th.

    In addition, the Board of Education took action to adopt the 2017-18 school calendar. Both of the calendars are available in the upper left-hand corner of our website.

    We wish all of our school community members a pleasant spring.

    Very sincerely yours,

    Geoffrey W. Zoeller, Jr., Ed.D.

    Superintendent of Schools

  • DISTRICT ASSESSMENT UPDATE

    Dear Members of the Rochelle Park Community:

    At the October 13th Board of Education meeting, Mrs. Hurd, our Director of Curriculum, gave a comprehensive report on District Assessment.  The excellent news is that our students are trending up on the PARCC assessment and this is a tribute to our faculty and staff members who work with our students every day.  You may access that report here.  

    Also at the October 13th meeting, our Principal, Mr. Cannici, presented a letter that was recently received from the Executive Director of the Regional Achievement Centers (RAC), John Marshall. For those of you that do not know, the Regional Achievement Centers are intervention teams that were launched by the New Jersey Department of Education to implement proven turnaround principles and improve student achievement in districts that were identified as “Priority” or “Focus” Schools. Back in 2012, Midland School No. 1 was identified as a “Focus School” due to an achievement gap that developed between higher and lower performing subgroups on state assessments.

    We are very happy to report that the letter from Mr. Marshall provided our district with some very encouraging news about the progress we have made in recent years. Our administrative team and our instructional staff members have been working extremely hard to improve student performance on state assessments, and the results we recently received prove that the hard work is paying off!  Please feel free to read Mr. Marshall's letter here.

    We are very encouraged by our progress to date and hope to continue to have your support as together we take our next steps in improving our program and achievement scores.

    New messaging tool this year 

    Some of our middle school teachers are using a new messaging tool this year called "Remind". This tool, which can be used as an "app" on your cell phone, helps teachers share important updates and reminders with students and parents. If you receive an email explaining that your child's teacher is currently using "Remind", please be advised that it is safe and that we are aware of its use in our classrooms.
