The New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association is pleased to report that the New Jersey General Assembly has designated the week of May 15-20 as New Jersey School Supervisors and Directors Week.
In its resolution, introduced by Speaker Vincent Prieto, supervisors and directors were lauded for the essential role they play in preparing today’s students for the challenges of tomorrow. Supervisors and directors are acknowledged for establishing and supporting a positive learning environment for students, while also helping to build strong relationships between members of the school community, including staff, students, and parents. Further, supervisors and directors lend their considerable knowledge and expertise to supervising student instruction, mentoring teachers, recognizing the accomplishments of staff, encouraging collaboration among staff, ensuring the implementation of best practices, monitoring student achievement and progress, and facilitating and modeling data-driven decision-making to inform instruction.
“We appreciate this recognition of what we have always known, that the contributions made by supervisors and directors in New Jersey are critical to the success of our schools and our students,” said Pat Wright, executive director of the New Jersey Principals and Supervisors Association. “We are especially proud of the outstanding work these devoted educational leaders do on a daily basis, and we thank them for their continuous and tireless efforts dedicated to the ultimate goal of improving student learning.”
