Dear Penns Grove-Carneys Point RSD Parents, Guardians and Staff Members,
The Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District welcomes everyone back to the 2016-2017 school year! Our district will be open for staff on September 6 and 7, 2016 providing full days of professional development. Students will begin with a full day of school on September 8, 2016.
Many preparations have been made during the summer. With our commitment to work together to serve our students, the Board of Education and the Administrative Team met during August to develop our district vision and mission which will finalize the last stage of the Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District Strategic Plan.
Upon completion of the roof work, the second phase of the referendum began during the summer by renovating doors and windows in the schools making them more energy efficient. The last phase of the referendum will include restroom facilities and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. An improved district website, which will be friendlier and accessible to our staff, students and community, should be available this year. Technology is being revamped enhancing the wireless infrastructure by expanding the access points to provide better connectivity to staff and students for educational purposes. During the coming year, a curriculum audit to evaluate the instructional programs and services will take place to determine the quality of offerings and changes, if needed.
The Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District continues to have high expectations for our students by instilling in them a sense of pride and community while preparing them to be responsible, respectful, resourceful, collaborative, compassionate and productive citizens. Our competent, highly-qualified and knowledgeable faculty continues striving to provide students with the knowledge base needed to be competitive and empower them to be successful in institutions of higher education and in their careers.
The Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District is known for its excellent schools, dedicated students, qualified teachers, caring parents, and supportive community. I invite you to work together to continue building on the solid educational programs and share the great happenings in our district to further our vision of uniting schools, families, and community to create a brighter future for all!
Best wishes for a great school year,
Dr. Zenaida Cobian
Superintendent of Schools
