Little Egg Harbor Township School District (29-2690)

Little Egg Harbor Township School District

The Little Egg Harbor Pre-K – 6 District has created an environment that is both academically challenging and developmentally responsive to the needs of our students. We are proud to be one of the few districts in the State to offer a full day grant-funded, high quality pre-school program for our community. Our vision is to nurture intellectual achievement and civic responsibility, and foster positive self-esteem for all students. Our students are challenged with a rich curriculum that infuses Common Core Standards, technology, and rigor. The Little Egg Harbor School District is vested in the integration of English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics concepts in all cross-curricular areas. Our new Board approved ELA and Mathematics Roadmaps will incorporate the rigor needed for the State's new PARCC (Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers) assessments and to ensure that students are meeting Common Core and State standards.

The administrative focus is to assist teachers and administrators with the usage of data to individualize instruction for every student. A collaborative student academic achievement database has been created for all staff members to utilize. These shared files allow teachers to tailor instruction to meet the individual needs of every student. Teachers will receive constant administrative feedback from classroom walk-throughs to improve instructional practice.
The district offers a full continuum of programs and related services designed to provide specialized instruction to meet the needs of our students’ IEPs. Refining and improving the I&RS (Intervention & Referral Services) program will more efficiently service the vast needs of our students.

Our teaching staff is committed to insuring the delivery of the best possible instruction to their students, as is evidenced by their participation in professional development opportunities designed to promote their own professional growth. Teachers are offered the opportunity to meet in professional learning communities once a week due to a carefully planned schedule.
Service to the students in the Little Egg Harbor School District is truly a community endeavor: we work closely with law enforcement to ensure the safety of our students through the hiring of three armed police officers each assigned to one of our buildings. Additionally, we have entered into a joint agreement with the municipality for shared services with the purchase of gasoline and snow removal services. We here in Little Egg truly believe that it takes a village to raise and educate a child, and that it is only through working together that we can provide only the very best for our children. We are proud to be members of this unique community.

The mission of the Little Egg Harbor School District is to facilitate the educational, physical, social and emotional growth of our student population and to prepare them for life in the twenty-first century. The word “can’t” is not an option…YES I CAN!
