  • Board of Education Approves 2019-2020 Budget

    On May 3rd, the Wayne Board of Education unanimously approved a $173 million budget for the 2019-2020 school year. The spending plan represents a tax levy increase of 2% over the prior year, which translates to an annual increase of $157 on the average home assessed at $229,950. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Mark Toback commented, “I believe this is an exceptional budget for many reasons. Foremost in my mind is the fact that this budget is the first step we need to take to bring full-day kindergarten to Wayne starting in September of 2021. We are taking this first step without seeking additional funding beyond the 2% tax levy cap.”

  • Letter from the Superintendent - District Testing Update

    January 25, 2019 - Dear Parents, Guardians and Students: The end of January usually marks a time when we receive a flood of correspondence from parents regarding their desire to not have their children participate in the New Jersey Department of Education standardized testing program. With the 2015 transition to a computer-based testing program (PARCC) and the resulting skepticism over the use and sharing of student data, the widespread unpopularity of the Common Core State Standards and other state-mandated reforms, and a host of other problems too numerous to list, parents and students had many reasons to be concerned.
