     An Updated Message from Dr. Victor Valeski, Superintendent of Schools

    This past Friday, a reporter from the Home News Tribune called for a comment on an article he was writing about anti-Semitism in East Brunswick Schools.  I responded with the following comment, by email, to which the reporter confirmed receipt: 

    Attached is the official statement released by the Board of Education and read publicly at their May 4th Board Meeting.  Additionally, since that meeting, EBPS has been working with law enforcement and the County to develop additional programming for both students and staff to specifically address bias awareness, reporting and consequences.” 

    Unfortunately, my comment was not reflected in the published article. As the Superintendent of this school district, I pledge to you that we are fully engaged in reviewing our responses to alleged bias incidents.  We have already identified, planned, and in some circumstances initiated, purposeful actions. The entire scope of our focus is covered in three distinct components: 

    1. I will be talking to the entire East Brunswick Public Schools staff about ways we can raise awareness about bias, harassment, intimidation and bullying. 
    1. A combination of age-appropriate assemblies will be delivered at elementary and Hammarskjold Middle schools. Additionally, small group discussions will be facilitated at Churchill Junior High School and East Brunswick High School, addressing bias awareness, causes, reporting and consequences. 
    1. We will engage families at multiple Parent University sessions next school year to talk about creating a bias-free school environment and strengthening the Staff-Student-Family connection. 

    Please contact me personally, at 732-613-6705, if you have questions or concerns.

     

    Welcome to East Brunswick Public Schools, a nationally recognized District with all 11 of our schools having earned Blue Ribbon distinction.  We are Creating our Blueprint for Success during the 2016-17 school year.  Acknowledging the tremendous work of our past and the feedback we received in last year’s collaborative strategic planning effort, we are looking forward to the future by creating a new plan that addresses the changing dynamics of instructional delivery and education.  

    We are committed to facilitating the success of every student while setting the bar for our district success at the highest level.  We are positioning ourselves to be more flexible and responsive in leading innovation and making continuous improvements throughout our organization by utilizing our e3b Equation.

    We will:  

             Examine our current condition.

             Explore opportunities to improve students’ experiences in Academics, Athletics and Arts or any element impacting
             the culture of our schools and offices.

             Engage all the appropriate stakeholders in a consensus decision for improvement.

             Benchmark the results with data using a pre-defined standard.

    Additionally, whether you are a parent, guardian, student or community member we encourage you to engage in our conversations focused on enhancing the great education we already offer, as well as exploring new ways to improve every student’s and family’s EBPS experience. 

    Another exciting school year, filled with potential, is about to begin!   We hope you will join us, as an active participant, on our new journey.

    Sincerely,

    Signature

     Dr. Victor P. Valeski, Superintendent of Schools
