Hoboken Curriculum Project Approved by Hoboken Board of Education

On Tuesday, December 15, 2009 the Hoboken Board of Education unamiously adopted the Hoboken Curriculum Project.

WHEREAS it is necessary for a New Jersey Board of Education to approve

and/or adopt a Curriculum on an annual basis, and

WHEREAS it is the Curriculum which forms the roadmap by which instruction is

delivered, and

WHEREAS the Hoboken Curriculum Project has been writing and designing a

curriculum product for the past several years, a curriculum aligned with the New

Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, and

WHEREAS a curriculum document is a fluid and growing piece of educational

literature, and thus shall be frequently updated and fine-tuned, and

WHEREAS adoption of a curriculum by a Board of Education does not

necessarily imply the endorsement of every page of the document, but rather

acknowledges the fact that its district, its teachers, and its students have been

provided with educational guidelines,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that, after a presentation of the Curriculum to

the Board and the Public two months ago, and a recent follow-up public and

board question and answer opportunity, the Curriculum as prepared, written, and

presented, be accepted and adopted by the Hoboken Board of Education on this

the fifteenth day of December, 2009 for the 2009-2010 School Year.
