Reconsideration Documents for the 2013-14 School Year QSAC Instruction and Program DPR - Hoboken School District

After receiving a score of 45 out of 100 on the June 16, 2014 QSAC 2014-15 Placement Letter for the Instruction and Program DPR, then superintendent Mark Toback asked the State of New Jersey's Department of Education for reconsideration or appeal for the low rating (80 is passing). The appeal allowed for both reconsideration of the score by the state as well as initiated a delay in when the Board would officially have to present the results to the general public (the Board by code must report QSAC scores at the next regularly scheduled Board meeting after receiving their QSAC Initial Placement Letter). 

The appeal or reconsideration was denied. The following are the official documents the State of New Jersey generated in response to reconsideration as well as the state's reasons for denying the appeal. The score of 45 in Instruction and Program stands.
