School: Laning Avenue E.S.
District: Verona (Essex County)
Year Awarded: 2004-05
Superintendent: Earl T. Kim
Principal: Frank Albano
Description: The difference between an average school and a successful school, in our case, has been a collaborative effort to raise the bar for our school community. Project Raise the Bar has asked our administration, teachers, parents, students, and community (our learning team), to increase their contributions in and out of the classroom to help our students achieve academic success. Our goals to double parent participation, increase teacher contributions and community support in order to meet our goal of higher student academic achievement have all been met. Formerly performing below other schools in our own district and in our district factor group, our school can now boast of a near advanced proficient mean on many NJASK assessments and a cohesive, efficient and invigorated, learning environment. Our school learning team has raised the bar on their own idea of what they can and will achieve.
