  • Dr. Fitzhugh's NJQSAC Announcement
    "We Did It TEAM!"
    This is how we are MOVING FROM "GOOD TO GREAT"

    I am pleased to announce that the Orange Public School District obtained a score of 83% in Curriculum and Instruction on the New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum (NJQSAC) report for the school year 2019-2020. NJQSAC is the Department of Education's monitoring and district self-evaluation system for public school districts. In SY 2018-2019 and as reported to the Board of Education earlier in SY 19-20, our score in Curriculum and Instruction was 74%. Throughout the school year, the Curriculum Directors, Supervisors, teachers, and I embarked on a revision process of all district curriculums. In that particular area of the report, we received a perfect score of 40 out of 40. Per the New Jersey Department of Education, the district has satisfied at least 80% of the weighted indicators in each of the five areas of the NJQSAC review process (Instruction and Programs, Operations, Personnel, Governance, and Fiscal) and has been designated as "high performing. The Commissioner will recommend to the State Board of Education that the Orange Township Public School District be certified as providing a thorough and efficient system of education for three years or until the next NJQSAC review. Congratulations on this accomplishment.
