District Calendar 2013-14 Modification
Dear School Community Members,
 
The Board-approved school calendar for the 2013-14 school year (CLICK HERE) includes the following contingency plan for the use of more than the three allotted emergency days:
 
“NOTE: The calendar may be extended should unforeseen circumstances require it or subject to the work year being extended. Therefore, no plans which cannot be changed should be made prior to June 30. The Board of Education reserves the right to modify the calendar as may be deemed necessary. This includes reducing/eliminating vacation periods. If additional days are required, they will be as follows: end of June and/or April, etc.”
 
To date, we have used six emergency days to close schools due to inclement weather conditions. This means that we must make up three days in order to meet the State’s minimum requirement of 180 school days. In line with the abovementioned note, the Board has elected to take from the April break, starting with Friday, April 11 and working backward as needed. Accordingly, Wednesday, April 9; Thursday, April 10; and Friday, April 11 are now regular school days for all administrators, faculty, staff, and students.  Please schedule your April plans accordingly.
 
Sincerely,
 
Frank Romano, II, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
FAMS Digital Learning Presentation
Click HERE to view the FAMS Digital Learning Community Presentation to the Board of Education.

FAMS Digital Learning Committee (DLC) was formed in December of 2012 with the goal of determining the needs of the middle school students in regards to digital and online learning, workplace and 21st century skills and online assessments. The DLC is made up of a cross section of teachers from the middle school and administrators. We started to meet as a group in January of 2013 and after much discussion came to the conclusion that the tool we needed to address all areas of concern was a Learning Management System or LMS.

The DLC met formally eight times over the past year. Committee members also worked within their team meetings to inform colleagues of our work and to gather information. The committee kept the full middle school faculty informed by presenting to them at three faculty meetings throughout the past year. All of the stakeholders, (staff, students and parents), were surveyed in order to gauge their position on this initiative. The response was in favor of moving to 1:1 computing.  On 1/28/14 the Committee presented their work to the BOE.

The committee has determined that  Macintosh  will be the best solution for our students. Our expectations of our students far exceed the basic types of uses that simple devices provide. Our work continues as we discuss, among other things, student responsibilities and rules and expectation of acceptable use. We are reaching out to neighboring districts that have already implemented 1:1 initiatives to help guide our work. We look forward to continuing to "provide the students in Franklin Lakes with a comprehensive, academically challenging, educational program that recognizes the individual needs of students and responds to the changing demands of our society". (BOE Mission Statement)
