BRADLEY BEACH —The Bradley Beach Board of Education has announced an increase in NJSLA scores in Bradley Beach Elementary School.
District Superintendent and Principal Michael Heidelberg began the meeting by congratulating the staff and student body for the major improvement of the New Jersey Student Learning Assessment [NJSLA] scores for the 2022-2023 school year. NJSLA scores measure student proficiency of grade-level skills, knowledge and concepts that are critical to college and career readiness.
Grades three through eight are required to take a yearly learning assessment to test the knowledge they have retained for subjects such as English language arts, mathematics and science.
English language arts and mathematics scores are measured on a five to one scale. Five denotes a score that exceeds grade level expectations, while one is not yet meeting grade level expectations.
More than half of the Bradley Beach Elementary student body are meeting or exceeding grade level expectations. Scores increased by 57 percent from the year prior, according to Mr. Heidelberg. He said, “That is a humongous number and we are very happy with that,” which he has not yet seen in his career.
