NJEA, along with other public education stakeholder groups, has released a letter outlining several top priorities as New Jersey faces a rapidly approaching deadline to prepare for instruction in the upcoming school year. Joined by groups representing superintendents, business administrators, principals and parents, NJEA has called for clear guidance, adequate lead time, additional resources and state-level assistance in obtaining needed safety equipment whenever in-person instruction resumes.

The signatories, known as the LEE group (Leaders in Educational Excellence), have been assertive in demanding that the state prioritize the health and safety of students and staff and provide the resources necessary for districts to provide a safe and effective education to students throughout this pandemic.

The letter follows NJEA’s earlier release of its Education Recovery Plan, which provides greater detail on a number of instructional and health and safety issues faces by educators and students in the current environment.
