BERKELEY HEIGHTS — The Board of Education will meet tonight at 7:30 p.m. over the online platform zoom, where the body will convene after Governor Living High School has transitioned to remote learning due to the spread of COVID-19 among some of its student population. The outbreak came outside the school during a non-school event.
According to the night’s draft agenda, the meeting will feature diversity committee updates along with a discussion of benchmarks.
During the last meeting, Board President Doug Reinstein said student progress and benchmarking would be a main topic of the Nov.12 Berkeley Heights Board of Education meeting.
