Welcome to our Department

The Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment works with members of the District Leadership Team to oversee the total educational experience each child receives as a student in Pompton Lakes. Every content area follows curricula approved by the Pompton Lakes Board of Education and aligned with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Following a yearly professional development plan, the district also offers professional learning opportunities to the entire staff to provide teachers and para-professionals with the latest evidence-based instructional strategies that will hopefully provide the students with a well-rounded educational experience. Additionally, the District LeadershipTeam ensures that the curriculum and instructional strategies following Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles are used in classrooms not only provide students with the content and skills necessary to meet grade-level benchmarks, but they also serve as a model for the necessary expertise and knowledge needed for college and career readiness.

To aid in the communication between the school and parents/guardians, this office also maintains web-based student information system, OnCourse Connect, which provides real-time information on students’ assessments and classroom assignments for Grade 6-12. For more information about OnCourse Connect, please reach out to Adrianna DiCosimo at adicosimo@plps.org or via phone at 973-835-7100 x2513 from 1:00 - 4:00 pm daily.

Furthermore, parents/guardians are encouraged to connect with their child’s teachers to learn more about Google Classroom. As a 1:1 district in grades K-12, Google Classroom is the district’s choice web service to make it easier for all students with a school-provided Google Account and their teachers to connect both inside and outside of the classroom.
