“Support Our Students” Advocacy Group
Statewide coalition of currently 62 districts being negatively impacted by the reduction of state aid
Working together to bring the message and concerns to state legislatures about the severe and negative impact the state aid reduction will have on students, educational programming and the taxpayers in their districts.
As a coalition we are looking to “fill the room” and work together to leverage the legislators
Two recent bills have been put forth in to education committees that will assist some of the districts:
A4692 and S3219 would eliminate the census-based funding of special education aid in the school funding law and move to a per pupil calculation.
A4691 and S3220 would enable tax levy growth limitation adjustment for school districts experiencing reduction in State Aid.
- Looking to commit at least 10 people from our district (parents and staff) to contact legislators in support of these bills - please contact Misty Weiss if you are interested.

You do not need to be a great runner to come out for the team. We all practice together, but when we compete in meets against other schools, you are divided into boys and girls for each event. Fifth and sixth graders run together and seventh and eighth graders run together. Track events include 100m, 200m, 800m, 1600 (one mile) run, relay, long jump, and shot put.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at school. Attached is a schedule for the season. Please note, the schedule is subject to change. Please sign up for my Track Remind for updates as needed. Thank you and I look forward to a great season!

Intervention & Referral Services (I&RS) Explained
Within our district, I&RS is comprised of a multidisciplinary team (CST team member, general education teacher, regular education teacher and referring teacher) that establishes and implements in the school in which general education students are served, a coordinated system for planning and delivering intervention and referral services designed to assist students who are experiencing learning, behavior, or health difficulties, and to assist staff who have difficulties in addressing students’ learning, behavior, or health needs in accordance with the requirements of N.J.A.C. 6A:16-8.1 and 6A:16-8.2.
A student not known to have a disability who is experiencing learning, behavior, or health difficulties shall be referred to the I&RS Team. This referral may be made by any school staff member or by the student’s parent. The student’s parent shall be informed of any such referral.
Intervention and Referral Services Action Plans:
The I&RS Team shall develop and implement a written action plan for referred students that provide for appropriate school or community interventions or referrals to school and community resources, based on collected data and desired outcomes for the identified learning, behavior, or health difficulties.
