Members of the New Jersey State Board of Education and representatives from the New Jersey Business and Industry Association (NJBIA) and the New Jersey Council of County Vocational Technical Schools (NJCCVTS) recently visited the Morris County School of Technology in Denville, spending an afternoon with students and staff.
State Board members Mary Beth Gazi of Somerset County, Kathy Goldenberg of Morris County and Jack Fornaro of Warren County, along with Andrew Musick of NJBIA, Interim Morris County Executive Superintendent of Schools Roger Jinks, and Judy Savage and Jackie Burke of NJCCVTS received a firsthand look at how career and technical education programs enhance the high school experience.
After a lunch prepared by students in the Food Services Program, the State Board members toured the school speaking with teachers about their programs, and with students who spoke enthusiastically about their hands-on experiences.
The State Board members wrapped up their afternoon by discussing state policy issues related to career and technical education with the district administration, NJBIA and NJCCVTS.
