• NJASA Legal Department Research Services - March 2024


    Part One of this Administrative Guide discussed the responsibility of boards of education to deliver instruction consistent with the law and the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS), and it discussed the curriculum mandates for social studies, English Language arts, and mathematics. Part Two continues the discussion of the mandated elements of public school curricula for health and physical education. 

     

    The School News Briefs reviews three new cases including one in which the New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division held that a school employee who is named in a civil suit must give reasonable notice to the board at the start of the litigation in order to claim indemnification under N.J.S.A. 18A:16-6.

     

    The March Special Education Bulletin also discusses three new cases including one in which a court held that a board acted improperly by extending a special education student’s suspension beyond forty-five days and was ordered to return the student to school.
