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.

Jamie Vollmer, author of “Schools Cannot Do It Alone: Building Public Support for America’s Schools,” will be the keynote speaker at 10:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Wednesday’s sessions will focus on education reform issues.  Charter schools and the Opportunity Scholarship Act, which would provide funding to allow students in failing public schools to attend nonpublic schools, will be the topic of a panel discussion at 10:30 a.m.

Acting Education Commissioner Chris Cerf will discuss his vision for education reform at 2 p.m.
