Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) For Nonpublic Students

Click Here to View the Title I Parent Information Page
ESSA is a federally funded program where district contracts and consultations direct our ESSA services to students in nonpublic schools. The goal of the program has always been to provide instruction in math and literacy that results in academic achievement in small group, pull-out sessions or afterschool programs.

ERESC has been a preferred provider with a proven track record of student growth resulting from instructional excellence. The renewal of contracts to provide ESSA/Title I services is evidence of the outstanding service provided by our ERESC supervisor and certified teachers. District personnel work with our ERESC Title I/ESSA Supervisor to examine the allocations, criteria for eligibility of services and number of students at each school. Our certified supervisor conducts data collection for reports that are required by federal law and provides them to each district in a timely manner. ERESC services save schools and districts money by gathering, analyzing and writing reports.

Data driven instruction, research based methods and an alignment to the NJSLS have all contributed to an endurance of service contracts with many school districts. Our program is designed to motivate students to achieve the critical skills they need to accomplish on grade level or beyond performance. Frequent individualized one on one attention is frequently delivered by instructors to students resulting in rapid academic progress.

Certified supervisors share mandates, updates, instructional strategies and innovative technology systems with teachers. Professional development as mandated by the NJDOE is tracked. It is expected that ERESC teachers participate in workshop hours that will exceed the yearly expectation. To maintain excellence, certified teachers are evaluated using the Stronge Teacher Evaluation System. Instructional excellence is maintained through conversations and trainings on new techniques, strategies and programs that will impact learning.

ESSA/Title I considers the needs of the total child. Once academic strides become a reality, the student enjoys greater self-esteem and then there is no telling how far the student will excel.

Title I Parent Information

This page has been generated to provide parents/guardians with valuable resources to assist them with their academically struggling students who are enrolled in the Title I program at their respective schools. Our Title I teachers provide the academic support to assist your child on a weekly basis. These resources have been put together to provide you with information, resources, and materials to assist your child at home.

Parent Right-to-Know Letter

Dear Parent/Guardian:

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was passed by the U.S. Congress late last year and signed into law on December 10, 2015. The ESSA replaces the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and is the latest reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).

Although NCLB was designed to make changes in teaching and learning in order to increase students’ academic achievement, the Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT) provision under NCLB was eliminated from the ESSA. Despite this fact, all educators in New Jersey still are required to hold the appropriate state certificate/license for their given position.

Under the ESSA, all schools receiving Title I funds must inform parents of their right to ask schools about the professional qualifications of their child’s teachers and paraprofessionals. Our school receives Title I funding and we are happy to share this information with you upon your request.

New Jersey has some of the most qualified teachers in the country, and we are extremely proud of the quality of the teaching staff in the School District. All our regular teachers have college degrees and many have advanced degrees. In addition, every teacher continues learning through professional development activities and our teachers are evaluated each year to make sure their teaching skills remain at the highest possible level.

I encourage you to support your child’s education and communicate with your child’s teacher(s) on a regular basis. For more information on ESSA, and the role of parents, please visit the United States Department of Education’s (USDE) website at

By partnering, families and educators can provide your child with the best education possible.

Helping your child become a reader

Other than helping your children to grow up healthy and happy, the most important thing that you can do for them is to help them develop their reading skills. This booklet offers pointers on how to build the language skills of young children, and includes a list of typical language accomplishments for different age groups, suggestions for books, and resources for children with reading problems or learning disabilities.

What parents can ask and do to help their child thrive at school

As a parent or caregiver, you have a key role in your child’s education—you can help bridge your child’s transition from home to school, and give him or her the best chance at success in learning and in life. While your child’s education begins at home, this tool provides you with a set of questions to ask, and important issues to consider when approaching your child’s teachers, principals and counselors about his or her development. As a parent or caregiver, it can be hard to know how to support your child’s learning, but asking your child’s educators the right questions is a good place to start.

Helping your child succeed in school

Every child has the power to succeed in school and in life and every parent, family member and caregiver can help. This booklet provides parents with information, tools and activities they can use in the home to help their child develop the skills critical to academic success.

The NJDOE Family Portal

The NJDOE Family portal  is a system designed to help parents and families understand how the education system works at the state and local levels.

Book suggestions for all ability and grade levels

Here you can find a list of different books (with a brief summary of the text) for your child to read based upon their grade level. Most of these books can be found in your local public library. 

Helping your child learn mathematics

Our increasingly technological world demands strong skills in mathematics, not only in the workforce but also in everyday life, and these demands will only increase over the lifetimes of our children. The major portion of this booklet is made up of fun activities that parents can use with children from preschool age through grade 5 to strengthen their math skills and build strong positive attitudes toward math.

Helping your child with homework

Homework can help children to develop positive study skills and habits, improve their thinking and memory abilities, and encourage them to use time well, learn independently, and take responsibility for their work. This booklet helps parents of elementary and junior high school students understand why homework is important and makes suggestions for helping children complete assignments successfully.
