NEW JERSEY QUALITY SINGLE ACCOUNTABILITY CONTINUUM (NJQSAC) PERFORMANCE REVIEW
Updated: As a result of the efforts and commitment of our District administrators, faculty and staff, Franklin Township Public Schools continues to show tremendous growth in so many ways.
As a consequence, our Board of Education, for the first time since the inception of NJQSAC, will accept a score report acknowledging that the Franklin Township Public Schools received a passing score on an initial visit in all areas monitored by NJQSAC.
Since the earned scores in all monitored areas are above 80%, our district has earned the honor of being named a “High Performing District” on the NJ Department of Education NJQSAC Continuum. We were recently informed by the NJ Department of Education of our scores and placement of the continuum.
The QSAC review is an obligation that all school districts are required to complete every three years. During a QSAC review, school districts analyze their practice as it relates to five focus areas; Fiscal Management, Personnel, Operations, Instruction and Program, and Governance. A Board approved committee reviews each focus area for specific practices and determines a self-rating for the district.
This self-evaluation tool is called the District Performance Review (DPR) (*updated) It has sections which correspond to the five focus areas: Fiscal Management, Personnel, Operations, Instruction and Program (*updated) and Governance.
Franklin Township Public Schools completed its DPR in October and its submission to the Department of Education was approved by the Board of Education at their October 17, 2019 meeting.
*After receiving further information from the Department of Education, the district was able to update the Instruction and Program portion of the DPR. The Board of Education approved that update at their meeting on November 21, 2019.
In March of 2020, the district was visited by representatives from the Somerset County Office of the Department of Education at which time they were able to review the DPR.
