Welcome a New BOE Member
At its October meeting, the Board of Education appointed Nikki Weise to fulfill the term of resigned Board member Jessica Hanley through December 2018. We appreciate the time that Jessica gave and are thankful that Nikki is starting with us. Here is Nikki’s introduction:
Hi, my name is Nikki Wiese and I am the newest member of the Board of Education. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology, with concentrations also in Biology and Criminal Justice. I currently work full time for one of the leading medical device companies in NJ as a Quality Trainer IV and Project Coordinator under the Project Management Organization. I also hold certifications in Biotechnology and Medical Assisting.
I grew up in Bergen County, NJ and married my high school sweetheart, Scott. We moved to Roosevelt two years ago and have three children together Brandon 4, Nico 2, and Gianna 1. I look forward to a successful year ahead on the Board of Education.
The Board will have three positions on the ballot for November 7th. Ken LeCompte and John Ord are incumbents running for re-election. That leaves one open ballot space. We understand that RPS parent Naylon Larane is interested in being a write-in candidate.
Copies of the Strategic Plan Executive Summary were delivered to the BOE on September 28, 2017. We’d like to thank all the community members that helped write the new Mission Statement, State of the School Report, and State of the Community Report. In addition, district goals for the next five years were determined based on the Strategic Plan. The BOE will be reviewing and voting on each piece in the next month.
2017-2018 Board of Education Goals
Through the BOE self-evaluation process the following were developed:
Goal 1: Review, adopt and implement the Strategic Plan through board oversight.
Goal 2: Continue to refine the Committee of the Whole governance structure.
Goal 3: Investigate how to improve governance of the Board.
This Action Plan for this will include investigating the following:
- Succession planning
- Adding a non-voting member on the board to include an Interdistrict Choice parent.
