  • "ESSA" Every Student Succeeds Act

    Dear Parent/Guardian:

    The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was passed by the U.S. Congress late last year and signed into law on December 10, 2015. The ESSA replaces the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and is the latest reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

    Although NCLB was designed to make changes in teaching and learning in order to increase students’ academic achievement, the Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT) provision under NCLB was eliminated from the ESSA. Despite this fact, all educators in New Jersey still are required to hold the appropriate state certificate/license for their given position.   

    Under the ESSA, all schools receiving Title I funds must inform parents of their right to ask schools about the professional qualifications of their child’s teachers and paraprofessionals. Our school receives Title I funding and we are happy to share this information with you upon your request.

    New Jersey has some of the most qualified teachers in the country, and we are extremely proud of the quality of the teaching staff in the Carlstadt School District. All our regular teachers have college degrees and many have advanced degrees. In addition, every teacher continues learning through professional development activities and our teachers are evaluated each year to make sure their teaching skills remain at the highest possible level.

    I encourage you to support your child’s education and communicate with your child’s teacher(s) on a regular basis. For more information on ESSA, and the role of parents, please visit the United States Department of Education’s (USDE) website at http://www.ed.gov/essa.

    By partnering, families and educators can provide your child with the best education possible.

    Sincerely,

    Allison Evans Director of Curriculum and Instruction

    School Safety Parent Survey

    The CPS School Safety Team has met several times this year to discuss the safety and climate in Carlstadt. Parents, please participate in a short anonymous survey.  The purpose of the survey is to gain an understanding of how parents feel about the school environment as a means to improve student relationships, learning conditions, and the school’s overall safety. The information collected will assist our School Safety Team with making decisions regarding the climate at the Carlstadt Public School.

  • Superintendent's Welcome

    Welcome to the Carlstadt Public School website. The 2016-2017 school year will be starting for all students on September 6, 2016. Many changes to the facility have taken place since moving into the new Carlstadt Public School in April 2007.  The Mattie J.T Stepanek Park located on the north side of the building was completed in June of 2009. This area developed in conjuction with the Boro has added a new dimension to the area and has been consistently utilized by the town's residents and students. Totland located in the front of the school is fully operational and is utilized daily and on the weekends by the students and children of Carlstadt. This area continues to afford the younger students an area to play and exercise.  Additional fencing, cameras and lighting have been placed in specific areas to further assist with safety.

    Occupying the new school in April 2007 provided an opportunity for the staff and students to become acquainted with the state of the art facility and to begin experiencing all the educational benefits it has to offer. Housing our staff and students in one building allows for an educationally efficient organization, schedule, and daily function. One of our continued goals for this year is to utilize, as fully as possible, all rooms and technological enhancements available.

    For parents/guardians, we remind you of the arrival and dismissal times during the 2016-2017 school year.

    Our sincere thanks and appreciation are extended to the Carlstadt community members and officials for maintaining a very strong and collaborative relationship with the school.  We wish all our parents/guardians, community members, staff and students a safe and enjoyable school year.

    It continues to be my pleasure to serve as the Carlstadt School District Superintendent of Schools.
