New Jersey State Board of Education
Student Recognition Program Process

The State Board of Education recognizes the outstanding achievement of a student or a group of students who worked as a team. The purpose is to honor students who have made a significant contribution to school, community, family or other groups.

»

The Executive County Superintendent assigned to the state board meeting for any given month will select the student or team in consultation with the district superintendents.

»

The student or team may be selected from elementary, middle or high school. The achievement recognized is not limited to academics or athletic recognition. This is an opportunity to recognize an outstanding contribution that otherwise may not be acknowledged.

»

The Executive County Superintendent may solicit recommendations from the county roundtable or any other means that provides a broad-based selection process.

»

The school district will be responsible for ensuring that the student or team has the appropriate chaperones and transportation to the meeting.

»

The school district will make available for distribution to the State Board and the public a one-page profile describing the student or team and reasons for the selection.

»

The selected students will be formally honored by the Commissioner and State Board of Education at a recognition ceremony in the Spring of each year.
