ANNUAL MEETING/AGENDA NOTICE
At the meeting of the Great Meadows Regional Board of Education held on January 2, 2018, the Board designated the new meeting schedule.
Hackettstown Public Schools and the Great Meadows Regional District are pleased to offer an array of programs and services for students with special needs ages three to twenty-one. As public school districts serving students with ever-growing diverse needs and challenges, we strive to build programs that breed success. Our District staff are committed to providing specialized academic and behavioral supports and services to students with exceptional needs while maintaining inclusion with typically developing peers. We are excited to make those programs available to students in neighboring districts.

The County has a new program called Swift911. Residents of Warren County and those of us who commute to Warren County, can register our cellphones, work phones, home phones, e-mail addresses, etc. to the Swift 911 program so we will be notified of any emergency situations going on in our immediate area. It's a great tool for emergency management personnel to get the word out about public safety alerts. For example say a perpetrator is in the area or a hostage situation is taking place. They can zone in on that immediate area and notify people in those neighborhoods of the situation and to inform them to remain in their homes. People can only be notified if there phone numbers and/or email addresses are registered with the system. If people already have a listed phone number (as appose to a private number) they will already be registered into the system automatically.

It is important that all parents and guardians login to the new system to update their phone numbers and email addresses to prevent their missing important alerts from the school.
The GMRSD will provide quality educational opportunities that ensure the individual success of all students within a safe and supportive environment and to build life-long learners who will meet society’s challenges into and beyond the 21st century. To that end, it is anticipated that all students will achieve the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS) at all grade levels.
