6160 Instructional Services and Resources


Northfield, New Jersey X X Monitored Mandated
Policy Other Reasons

The Northfield Board of Education believes that personnel and materials appropriate to the needs of the school program must be available to each student and teacher.

To be in compliance with the requirements of federal law, the board of education directs the Superintendent of Schools to distribute curriculum materials and instructional supplies to the schools in such a way that equivalence of such materials is ensured among the schools. Staff assignments shall comply with this directive.

When a school fails to achieve adequate yearly progress as defined by the state for two consecutive years, all provisions in federal law shall be followed.

The board will endeavor to provide the supportive resources and personnel necessary for teachers to implement the approved curriculum in their classrooms and work effectively with children.

It will be the administration’s responsibility to set up and maintain such central services for curriculum materials, including audiovisual materials, as are needed, and appropriate channels through which teachers and students will be supplied with these resources.

In addition, there will be a media resource center and media specialist to offer children instruction and teachers assistance in selecting and using learning resources.
