Dear Families of NECCS,
It is with great pleasure and excitement that we can announce to you that our school, Newark Educators’ Community Charter School, has been RENEWED through the school year of 2023! Notification of our Renewal Status came from the NJ Department of Education Charter School Office this week.
NECCS promises to continue serving our community with integrity and excellence. As our vision says, Learning for all. We are committed to ensuring that each child, everyday, will engage in a learning experience that will assist them in becoming for what they were purposed.
We are thankful that you have made us your school of choice. We will continue providing interventions with enrichment classes for all students. Our partnerships continue to increase with Main Street Counseling, Arts for Kids, NJIT, Rutgers University Behavioral Health Center, Bank Street College Collaboration, NJ PAC, Hockey Tickets from Prudential and more.
Our 2016-2017 School Performance Report clearly indicated that we are making academic gains. Additionally, we are striving to increase these gains on our state assessment (PARCC) for grades 3 and 4 by five percent starting this year, 2017-2018. Please review our Strategic Plan on our website, Our Board of Trustees, along with everyone here in our community, celebrates this labor of love. Together we did this and together we will continue to make NECCS every child’s school their stepping stone toward a very successful academic and professional future!
Thank you again,
Sincerely, D. Velez, Principal
