The importance of our school system in North Caldwell cannot be overstated. Our school system provides our children with what is widely considered to be a first-class education, and it entices new residents to move into town and allows property values to appreciate.
The school age population is increasing and it is critical that the Borough Council and the school boards work hand in hand to understand each other’s needs. We are committed to partnering with the North Caldwell and West Essex Boards of Education and improving coordination with and providing support to them. This includes supporting efforts for school expansion and engaging as thought partners for creative solutions for more space.
We will coordinate with the North Caldwell and West Essex Boards of Education to schedule meetings on dates that the Council does not meet so that residents are not forced to choose attendance at one meeting over another.
