South Bergen Jointure Commission Advances Inclusive Partnerships, Staff Changes, and Financial Health

In a recent meeting that spotlighted key issues affecting South Bergen Jointure Commission schools, the board members discussed several significant matters, including a new partnership with the Boys and Girls Club, a para-training agreement with Felician University, and important personnel changes.

The meeting took place on July 26, 2022, and started at 9:36 am with the majority of board members present. Superintendent Dr. Michael D. Kuchar provided updates on current programs and announced two key partnerships aimed at enhancing the educational experience of students within the district. The first was a proposed partnership with the Boys and Girls Club, which has the potential to provide additional resources and opportunities for students outside the classroom. The second was a para-training agreement with Felician University, which could offer specialized training for paraprofessionals in the district.

On the financial front, the board approved several resolutions to maintain the district’s fiscal health. The Board Secretary’s report as of May 31, 2022, confirmed that there were no over-expenditures in any of the major accounts or funds. The board also approved additional appropriations for revenues and expenditures for May 2022, recognizing anticipated revenues. Bills for June and July were reviewed and approved, with the totals amounting to $5,099,589.38.

Substantial personnel actions were also made during the meeting. Among them were the hiring of new teachers and paraprofessionals, such as Kelsey Tully and Haydy Noufal. Stefanie Heslin was appointed as a BCBA Behaviorist, a key role in assisting students with behavioral challenges. Several staff members for after-school home programming and services were approved, and there were also staff adjustments involving resignations and new hires.

Moreover, the board approved motions to pay additional compensation for Clubs and Activities Program, Office Support, Home Programming and Parent Training Home Program, and Home Instruction on an as-needed basis.

The meeting concluded with transportation matters, where the board approved the 2022-2023 Quote Results for Summer Set 1 and awarded Route S608 to All Points.
