School Evaluations, Parking Change Coming This Week

Here's a look at the week ahead in Westwood, Washington Township and Hillsdale.

Hillsdale school officials are scheduled to make a presentation about the district's Quality Single Accountability Continuum (QSAC) report during their meeting this week.

The QSAC is an evaluation for school districts used by the New Jersey Department of Education. Districts are evaluated for their instruction and programs, fiscal management, governance, personnel and operations.

Also, school officials from the Hillsdale district and the Westwood Regional district are planning to make presentations of data from standardized test scores during their respective meetings this week. 

The Hillsdale Board of Education meets Monday at 8 p.m. in George G. White School. The Westwood Regional Board of Education meets Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in Westwood Regional High School.

Ridgewood Road Parking

The Washington Township Council is scheduled to vote on an ordinance to change parking rules on a portion of Ridgewood Road during their meeting this week.

Currently, parking is prohibited on Ridgewood Road for 500 feet south of E. Glen Avenue and east from Ridgewood Boulevard North, accounting for most of the road. 

The council has discussed allowing more parking near Ridgewood Boulevard North since "no parking" signs were installed last spring and police began enforcing a years-old ordinance.

The township began enforcing the rule because of safety concerns at the intersection of Ridgewood Road, Ridgewood Boulevard North and E. Glen Avenue, but residents asked the town for more leeway in parking around the area. 

Officials previously said they believed the "no parking" signs could be cut back to just 250 feet from the intersection.

The Washington Township Council meets at 7:30 p.m. Monday in the Municipal Complex.
