Central Jersey College Prep Charter School (CJCPCS) administration, faculty, and staff are eager to accommodate your needs, questions, and concerns in the most efficient manner. CJCPCS encourages parents/guardians to address their questions and/or concerns directly with the teacher or the individual staff closest to the source of the question. For example, the child’s teacher is the most appropriate person with whom to speak regarding a question about his or her school progress, classroom behavior, and educational program as he/she is most familiar with the child.
The school has guidelines that allow for fairness and consistency as we serve our students and families. Our school community understands that clear, two-way communication is a vital component to a healthy school environment. If you have a question or concern, please follow this communication protocol:
1 – Contact with your child’s teacher or staff (Counselor, SPED Coordinator, Nurse) whom is closest to the source of your question.
2 – If the concern is not addressed with the proposed resolution by the appropriate teacher or staff member, you should contact the Executive Assistants.
3 – If the situation still remains unresolved, you should contact the School Lead Person, Dr.Sercan. Depending on the situation, the Chief Education Officer may refer parents/guardians to a specific department or person.
4 – If the situation is not resolved, you are invited to express your concerns to the Board of Trustees in one of their scheduled board meetings.
Note: We, the CJCPCS staff, will do our best to respond to parent inquiries within two school days.
The Board of Trustees recognizes the value of public comment and the importance of allowing members of the public to express themselves on matters of community interest.
In order to permit the fair and orderly expression of such comments, the Board policy provides for a period of public comment at every public meeting. Public participation shall be scheduled as indicated by the meeting agenda.
The portions of the Board Meeting designated as public comment are limited to thirty (30) minutes. Additional time may be allocated upon concurrence of the presiding officer and by an affirmative vote of the Board.
Please note that the Board cannot respond to any complaints from the public directed at any District employee or student, as the Board must protect each employee and student’s right to privacy.
The Board will not entertain personal complaints from school personnel unless the chain of command has been followed without satisfaction.
