Health Education

A meeting was held at Hoboken High School with district members Julie Ciarlone, Chanta Blue, Principal Lorraine Cella, Marie McCabe (Director of the HHS Student Center), Patricia Drumgoole (School Social Worker), Anthony Petrosino and Superintendent Raslowsky. The group met to discuss issues related to student health and health education both in the high school and throughout the district. Ms. McCabe shared with the group aspects of a health education curriculum under consideration in parts of the State of New Jersey. Discussions also included the possibility of submitting grant proposals and the importance of data and data analysis in making district wide decisions. Dr. Petrosino will share information gathered from this meeting with the Hoboken Curriculum Committee.
