Partnering with Municipalities: Understanding the Politics and Making it Happen
Our regional school district benefits greatly from collaborating with local municipalities, with recent results including a$500,000 municipal grant for a new district baseball field;
free solar panel installation that generates $50,000 in revenue per year; partnering support for the district’s proposed $35 million bond referendum; waived municipal fees; and more.

The HVRSD Board President and Hopewell Township Mayor will discuss partnering for gains, navigating the political landscape, networking, community involvement/perception, how to navigate through the process and cut the red tape.

Legislative Update
Once again, the Legislative Update forum will feature a combination of NJSBA’s traditional forum with the session formerly held by the Garden State Coalition of Schools. It is hoped that this combined session will allow for the participation of a larger number of legislators and possibly other state officials, and provide a larger block of time for workshop participants who may also want to attend other sessions that overlap this popular annual forum. Owing to the larger-than-anticipated turnout we’ve experienced in recent years, this year’s update will also feature a larger room to comfortably accommodate more workshop participants. Please come with your thoughtful questions for what we anticipate will be a great, collegial experience with our elected officials.

Members of the New Jersey State Legislature have been invited to participate.

Human Trafficking
Human trafficking is a growing issue that has an impact for schools. The NJ Attorney General established a task force to address all facets of this issue including educating students, all school personnel and Boards of Education. In collaboration with the DOE, the AG is advocating the development of middle/high school curricula that addresses human trafficking in the context of social studies, health, and American history.
