Early Childhood Advisory Council

The Early Childhood Advisory Council (ECAC) is an advisory council composed of community stakeholders including but not limited to educators, parents, and community members interested in the education and development of children in preschool through grade. This committee is convened by the school district and meetings are held quarterly (N.J.A.C.6A:13A-1.2) 

Currently, our council is focused on creating and utilizing assessments to determine the needs of our PreK families as well as supporting our students during periods of transition.
