ATLANTIC CITY — Workshops on bullying, teacher evaluations, and school reform will be featured at the annual New Jersey School Boards Association’s annual conference at the Atlantic City Convention Center today through Wednesday.
The event features more than 200 training and information sessions for the state’s more than 5,000 school board members, charter school trustees, and school administrators.
A summit on school bullying will be hosted by the New Jersey Association of School Administrators, a co-sponsor of the conference, at 2:30 p.m. today.
