How did your school do? N.J. Department of Education releases school report cards

    On Thursday, the New Jersey Department of Education released the report cards for every school in the state’s nearly 600 districts.

    You can read the report cards of schools in each New Jersey county on the DOE website.

    The Department of Education says the New Jersey School Report Card has provided the public with information about every school in New Jersey since 1995, when the annual accountability report was mandated by the Legislature.

    The report cards are meant to give teachers and parents an idea of how a school is performing academically and fiscally while also giving them a tool to compare schools.

    The edition of the report cards released Thursday includes data from the 2010-11 school year.

    The DOE says the 2011 edition of the New Jersey School Report Card offers the same level of information as in 2010.
