The Ewing Township Board of Education met on January 30th in the Parkway Elementary School Media Center.


The meeting at Parkway is part of the BOE’s ‘traveling Board meeting’ approach, which enables the Board to visit each district school, tour the building, meet staff and receive an update from the building principal. 


Parkway was the second stop on the Board’s tour, after visiting Lore in November.


Board Vice President Karen McKeon ran the meeting, in the absence of Board President Stephanie Staub.


EHS Ambassador to the Board, Caroline Unger, gave an update on events and happenings at Ewing High School.


Superintendent Michael Nitti overviewed several developments since the past meeting, including the district being honored by the College Board for increasing achievement and opportunity in Advanced Placement offerings.


Parkway Principal Nicole Harris welcomed the Board and presented on programs and achievements at Parkway Elementary School.


During the “Superintendent’s Recommendations” of the Agenda, the district’s and each school’s state HIB grades were approved and will be made available on the district’s website.


The following policies and regulations were approved by the Board as “Second Readings” and are now formal Board policy:
