A Message from Our Superintendent

Sancha K. Gray

It is with great joy and excitement that I assume the role of Superintendent of Schools for the Asbury Park School District. Our district is one that has been defined as the most rapidly improving district in the nation by Ed Week in November 2016. This distinction represents the collective work of the entire Asbury Park School District Family. It is my goal to continue adding to the significant gains we have made, always keeping in mind our pledge of “Building a Brighter Future” for our students, families, staff and the community. Together, WE have changed the perception of the Asbury Park School District by what we believe, have done and continue to do. Our graduation rate has increased; students are making steady, incremental gains in literacy and mathematics; we have been recognized for the third year in a row as an Innovative District and so much more!

We will continue "Building a Brighter Future" through our new pillars:

  • What: Performance – the action or process of carrying out a task.
  • How: with Passion – an intense desire or enthusiasm for something
  • Tied to our Why: Purpose – the reason for which something is created or exists.

Additionally, our district will remain student-centered by being attentive and responsive to their needs as this is the best way to ensure that they will be prepared for the 21st Century. 

Sancha K. Gray, Superintendent of Schools

ATTENTION PARENTS!
Beginning September 8, 2020, the Asbury Park School District with unanimous support from the Board of Education will utilize a full‐remote learning model for the first 30 instruction days of the 2020‐2021 school year. “Our priority is to educate the children and we want to do that in a way that ensures their health and safety. With the Governor’s provision for a full remote opening, this allows for that flexibility.”‐ Angela Ahbez Anderson.
We opted to err on the side of caution with this decision and will use the information gleaned from March and our most recent virtual summer school pilot to provide an enhanced remote‐learning environment for our students in keeping with the feedback from parents and staff who expressed concern about returning to In‐Person instruction. We will reassess our plan at the end of September to determine whether we will transition to the hybrid‐learning model as outlined in our “Road Back Restart and Recovery Plan.”
