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.
