New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum (NJQSAC)
The New Jersey Quality Single Accountability Continuum (NJQSAC), as required by N.J.S.A. 18A:7A-3 et seq., is a system whereby all public school districts in the State are monitored and evaluated. NJQSAC is designed to be a single, comprehensive accountability system that consolidates and incorporates the monitoring requirements of applicable State and Federal programs. Under NJQSAC, public school districts are evaluated in five key component areas of school district effectiveness—instruction and program, personnel, fiscal management, operations and governance—to determine the extent to which public school districts are providing a thorough and efficient education. The standards and criteria by which public school districts are evaluated will assess actual achievement, progress toward proficiency, local capacity to operate without State intervention, and the need for support and assistance provided by the State.
The Office of the Deputy Superintendent of Schools provides administrative oversight responsibility for district-wide NJQSAC compliance. The following information represents past and current district-wide NJQSAC processes and related activities. To access information please click the corresponding links below.
