The first quarter of 2003 has been productive at the Department of Education (DOE) with accomplishments ranging from issuing updates on emergency preparedness, announcing a Renaissance School Zone in Trenton, continuing the Administration’s push to meet with teachers in every county of the state, and revising both the Core Curriculum Content and professional development standards.

"The DOE remains steadfast in our dedication to Gov. McGreevey’s hopes to provide the best education possible for all students in New Jersey," Commissioner Librera said. "Our mission is clear and our goals are concrete. We will continue to create and provide an environment that yields nothing but the best results for all our children."
