ELIZABETH – Approximately 2,000 people are expected to gather on Thursday evening, Oct. 24, for a large-scale celebration of Elizabeth Public Schools’ academic achievements. The Perfect Scores Award Ceremony, held in the Dunn Sports Center, will honor students who earned a perfect score on the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJ ASK) and their subject area teachers.
The NJ ASK is a state mandated test administered annually to third through eighth graders in order to assess their proficiency levels in Mathematics, Language Arts and Science. The district went from 23 perfect scores in 2007 to a record 410 perfect scores in 2013.
Board President Tony Monteiro commented, “This celebration helps to accentuate why Elizabeth Public Schools is considered the number one urban school district in the State of New Jersey. I commend all of the Perfect Score students and teachers for their dedication and hard work in achieving at such high levels.”
At the ceremony, Perfect Score students and their subject area teachers will be recognized by Interim Superintendent of Schools Olga Hugelmeyer and Elizabeth Board of Education members, who will present every student and teacher with an award and commemorative poster memorializing their exemplary commitment to achieving excellence.
