In order to prepare our children to be productive and responsible citizens, the Mission of the Little Egg Harbor Township School District is to develop and maintain a collaborative and nurturing learning environment fostering individual abilities and encouraging all children to achieve their highest potential. We expect all children to meet or exceed the grade level benchmarks set forth in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS).
IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT STUDENTS ATTEND SCHOOL ON A REGULAR BASIS. EXCESSIVE ABSENCES CAN RESULT IN STUDENTS NOT BEING PROMOTED TO THE NEXT GRADE LEVEL. REFER TO ATTENDANCE & PROMOTION POLICIES.
