New Jersey Department of Education

Office of Comprehensive Support (OCS)

In accordance with New Jersey’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) State Plan, the NJDOE differentiates support by grouping districts into 3 levels. The OCS provides Level 2 technical assistance for Targeted schools and Level 3 supports, which is defined as on-site support, for districts with Comprehensive and Targeted schools. This is achieved primarily by the administration of School Improvement Award funding through the ESSA and deploying regional field support teams with expertise in instructional leadership, data-driven action planning, and cycles of continuous improvement guided by a growth mindset.
