NJDOE Releases New Back to School Guidelines

Posted on June 26, 2020

The NJ Department of Education just released its guidelines on how school districts can begin to plan how best to provide education to their students in the next school year. "The Road Back: Restart and Recovery for Education," outlines the four principles that school districts must follow in moving forward, including:

  • Ensuring a conducive and learning atmosphere;
  • Supporting educational leaders with planning;
  • Providing policy guidance and necessary funding to schools; and
  • Securing continuity of learning.

Governor Murphy said in today's press conference, that "no one size fits
all" can be taken as school districts move forward. That means that how
children learn come September, will likely look different from one
community to another.
