New Jersey State Learning Standards:

In 1996, the New Jersey State Board of Education adopted the state's first set of academic standards called the Core Curriculum Content Standards. The standards described what students should know and be able to do upon completion of thirteen-year public school education. Over the last twenty years, New Jersey's academic standards have laid the foundation for local district curricula that are used by teachers in their daily lesson plans. Revised every five years, the standards provide local school districts with clear and specific benchmarks for student achievement in nine content areas.

On June 3, 2020, the State Board of Education adopted the 2020 NJSLS (New Jersey State Learning Standards) in Visual & Performing Arts, Health/Physical Education, Science, Social Studies, World Languages, Computer Science & Design Thinking and Career Readiness, Life Literacies & Key Skills. These standards include topics of climate change, computer programming, science, and visual/performing arts. Want to learn more? See the following website for more information.

English/Language Arts and Mathematics standards were updated in 2016 and are not currently under review.

By September 2022, new standards will be adopted to Cape May Technical High School’s curriculum as needed. Additionally, new articulations and dual credit opportunities will be made available for Cape May Tech students with various post-secondary institutions.

    • The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was passed by the U.S. Congress and signed into law on December 10, 2015. The ESSA replaces the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and is the latest reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA). In partnership with families, the school, staff, and students will share the responsibility for improved student academic achievement and the means by which the school and parents will build and develop a partnership that will help children achieve the State’s high standards. At Cape May Tech, assistance for this achievement is provided via Title I Targetted Assistance.
