These are the shared characteristics among NJASA's 2017 regional Superintendent of the Year award winners. They inspire their school districts and communities to create positive change for students. They competently and confidently identified, tore down and lept over barriers to success, with strategy, goals and key stakeholder engagement strategies. Staff, students, parents and the community all crossed the finish line together.

School law is complex and constantly changing. New Jersey school leaders can depend on the Legal Handbook for New Jersey School Administrators Seventh Edition for timely legal information in an easy-to-scan format. Think of it as a practical field manual for school administrators who sometimes need to think like attorneys.The Legal Handbook is a great resource for those potentially difficult situations. Dress codes for staff. Immunization requirements for public schools. Misuse of the school computer for explicit sexual language. Parents’ constitutional rights to direct the education of their children. And so much more.There’s nothing else out there that delivers the kind of information that New Jersey public school leaders need in the format that’s this easy to use.In addition to the handbook, the authors monitor current case law and members’ legal questions to create NJASA’s monthly legal publication supplements. Those supplements provide timely information on pivotal cases affecting New Jersey public schools.
