The South Orange – Maplewood Board of Education has a very full agenda for its monthly meeting on Monday. The meeting will be held at the administration building at 525 Academy Street, Maplewood, at 7:30 p.m.

See the entire agenda here.

Among other things, the BOE will consider a resolution to revise the district’s academic placement policy, in light of the newly adopted Access & Equity policy.

The policy (#2314 – Academic Placement revision), states that while academic placement recommendations “should be given serious consideration by students and their parents or guardians,” they are “non-binding” and “all students shall have access to, and the ability to choose between different educational programs in all academic subjects, and at all academic levels.”

See the proposed revision here.

The board will also consider a resolution supporting a redistribution of state aid.

In addition, the board will discuss a Baseline Budget Report and will give updates on the recent Education Summit and the Let’s Talk program.
