    Academic Intervention

    All students are incredibly capable and deserve respect.  New Brunswick Public Schools provides instruction that challenges each student to achieve at the high level required for productive citizenship and employment.  The Academic Intervention program is grounded in the belief that challenges are an opportunity to grow.  

    Gifted and Talented Program

    The Gifted and Talented Program in New Brunswick Public Schools is located at Lincoln Annex School.  Our program includes students in grades 4-8.  Student learning meets the NJSLS for their respective grade level and utlizes the National Gifted and Talented Standards to go deeper into the subject matter. Students demonstrate skills in self-directed learning, thinking, research, and communications. This is evidenced by the development of innovative performance-based tasks that utilize and develop higher-level thinking skills.

    Title I

    Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA) provides financial assistance to local educational agencies (LEAs) and schools with high numbers or high percentages of children from low-income families to help ensure that all children meet challenging state academic standards. The Office of Basic Skills and Compensatory Education oversees programs in Basic Skills, Gifted and Talented, Career and Technical Education, Family and Community Engagement and the education of students who qualify for services under the McKinney Vento Act.

    Family and Community Engagement

    Raising the next generation is a shared responsibility. When families, communities and schools work together, students are more successful and the entire community benefits. Familly and Community Engagement is defined in Title I, Part A (Title I) of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESEA). The Family and Community Engagement Team is dedicated to strengthening the voice of families, by bringing focus to the needs of students so as to allow every student to reach full potential.
