Summer has been a busy and productive time for Princeton Public Schools.
Our schools served as home to our vibrant and extensive summer program. Hundreds of students and dozens of teachers, support staff, bus drivers, and administrators facilitated summer enrichment, transition programs, accelerated learning, and interdisciplinary experiences addressing the summer learning needs of all of our students.
In July, the district welcomed Mercer County Educational Specialist, Ms. Rosario Casiano, who conducted a special visit to PPS in recognition of our summer instructional program.
In addition, PPS used the summer months to improve facilities. A new, two-story wing of classrooms and collaborative spaces will open at Princeton High School in the fall. The new wing provides an additional 10,380 square feet of space and was paid for with funds from the 2018 referendum. Meanwhile, both Littlebrook and Community Park will have new roofing when school opens in September.
Other summer accomplishments include ongoing work on curriculum, the opportunity for staff to participate in a wide variety of professional development programs. Professional develop offerings included intensive and ongoing training to case managers who work with students who have Individualized Educational Programs (IEPs). Administrative also implemented improvements in intervention and referral services and expanded multi-tiered systems of support for all students.
