Superintendent's Office » QSAC


Once every three years public school districts in New Jersey are required to undergo monitoring by the New Jersey Department of Education. The New Jersey Department of Education has created a process for school districts who were designated as “high performing” districts during their previous monitoring to apply for and receive an equivalency waiver that provides approved districts with a three year extension.
There are five (5) areas which are assessed as District Performance Reviews (DPRs):
  • Instruction and Program
  • Fiscal Management
  • Governance
  • Personnel
  • Operations
Monitoring Process includes a self-evaluation and on-site monitoring by the Monmouth County Department of Education. School districts must achieve a minimum score of at least 80% in each area to pass QSAC monitoring and be designated as a “high performing” school district.

Colts Neck Township Schools was monitored and determined by the New Jersey Department of Education to be a "high performing school district.

N.J.A.C. 6A:30-3.1(a)-(d) and 3.2 require the district to complete a District Performance Review for all five components of QSAC. The Department of Education established an equivalent process that allows high performing districts to demonstrate continued compliance with QSAC regulations. This equivalent process involved the Department’s review of the district’s 2015-2016 QSAC Statement of Assurance and analysis of other critical QSAC indicators in each of the five mandated areas.
