Belleville Superintendent of Schools Joseph Picardo shared good news about state monitoring of the district at a recent public Board of Education meeting.
After explaining about QSAC, the Quality Single Accountability Continuum, Picardo talked about other advances made since the end of the school year.
QSAC is the state Department of Education’s monitoring and evaluation system for public school districts, state school officials said.
Then there is the state’s other monitoring of the district. Picardo talked about the process.
“We had a lot of work to do,” he said.
At the end of it all, Picardo said the outcome was positive.
“Their report stated that the district met all the requirements,” he said.
In addition, the district has filled a number of personnel slots for the fall.
“We have 23 new hires (as of Aug. 15), including Principals,” Picardo said. “Our Department Directors have interviewed non-stop.”
The process was expected to continue until the end of August.
“We working on filling the last few, as we speak,” he said at the Aug. 15 meeting. In addition, all schools passed inspection.
