All substitute credential applicants must now initiate their applications online through the New Jersey Teacher Certification Information System (TCIS).

Once the applicant applies online, the appropriate County Office of Education shall assist with the approval of the substitute credential application in TCIS.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE CAFETERIA
You may have seen on the news that school cafeterias across the country are experiencing food and paper shortages. Please be advised that our food service management company is doing the very best they can to serve the meal that is listed on the daily menu; however, many items are being delivered in reduced quantities which may cause unanticipated changes to the daily menu. We will make sure that students are aware of the change during their morning announcements and we will continue to offer alternate choices daily. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
