Any concerns regarding the district's Gifted and Talented Program should first be addressed with the Gifted and Talented Coordinator at each school. If the concern is not resolved, students and/or parents/guardians should contact the Building Principal at each school. If the concern is still not resolved, students or parents/guardians should contact Dr. Nisha Zoeller, the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum & Instruction, at firstname.lastname@example.org. After these avenues have been exhausted, students or parent/guardians who wish to file a written complaint with the Board of Education may send correspondence to Mr. James Jencarelli, Superintendent of Schools, at 48 Knoll Drive, Rockaway, NJ 07866, or via email to email@example.com.
An individual who believes the district has not complied with the provisions of N.J.S.A. 18A:35-34 et seq. (Strengthening Gifted & Talented Act) may file a complaint with the Board of Education. The Board shall issue a decision, in writing, to affirm, reject, or modify the district’s action in the matter. The individual may then file a petition of appeal of the Board’s written decision to the Commissioner of Education through the Office of Controversies and Disputes in accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:6-9 and the procedures set forth in State Board of Education regulations.
