Waldwick School Board Announces New Curriculum Initiatives and Welcomes New Staff Ahead of School Reopening

In a recently convened regular meeting of the Waldwick School Board, the highlight was a detailed curriculum presentation where several new and revised educational initiatives were unveiled. The meeting, led by President Daniel Marro and attended by the full slate of trustees along with Superintendent Dr. Paul Casarico, also featured announcements regarding the induction of new staff and updates on summer programs and referendum constructions.

The focal point of the meeting was the unveiling of the fresh educational blueprints aimed to enhance the learning experience in Waldwick schools. Dr. Susan Elias, the Director of Curriculum, spearheaded the presentation which also saw contributions from Kevin Carroll, the High School Principal; Josh Sussman, the Director of School Counseling Services, and Ms. Connie Alcoser, the Elementary Vice Principal. Details on the specifics of the new and updated initiatives remain awaited as the community looks forward to innovative approaches in education taking root in the upcoming academic session.

Superintendent Dr. Paul Casarico further informed attendees about the successful conclusion of summer programs and briefed them on the ongoing referendum constructions. To aid parents in navigating the upgraded facilities and acquaint them with other significant updates, communications from the Middle and High School principals are expected to be rolled out soon. Dr. Casarico also shared the heartening news of seven new staff members joining the ranks, with the training for them slated to begin the following week and the returning staff to reconvene on September 5th, gearing up for the school reopening on September 6th.

In other significant discussions, concerns over the overnight trip policy in relation to football camp were raised during the open floor to public comments on the consent agenda, emphasizing the necessity for clarity on the policy’s application. A parent inquired about the criteria determining bussing distance, a concern that perhaps echoes in many minds as schools prepare to reopen. The forum also saw an interactive Q&A session where multiple parents engaged with board members regarding the unveiled curriculum proposals, showcasing the community’s keen interest in the education roadmap laid out for their children.

While the trustees scrutinized various resolutions in the consent agenda, Trustee Troy Seifert stressed the importance of having a trainer in July moving forward, spotlighting the ongoing commitment to enhance educational frameworks.
