The district was certified as “Future-Ready” by Future-Ready Schools – New Jersey. The certification program is a partnership of the New Jersey Department of Education, New Jersey School Boards Association, and New Jersey Institute of Technology.
The year-long process required schools to submit evidence of Future-Ready practices in three categories: “Leadership;” “Education and Classroom Practice;” and Technology Support and Services.”
Only 55 schools, less than two percent in New Jersey, were certified as Future-Ready. All of Weehawken’s schools (Weehawken High School, Theodore Roosevelt, and Daniel Webster) achieved Future-Ready certification.
Weehawken is the sole district in Hudson County to have schools certified. Furthermore, there were only a handful of districts that had all of their schools apply to the program and then be certified.
