Quality Single Accountability Continuum (QSAC)

QSAC is the New Jersey Department of Education’s monitoring and evaluation system for public school districts.  It is a single comprehensive accountability system that consolidates and incorporates the monitoring requirements of applicable state laws and programs and complements federally required improvements.  The system focuses on monitoring and evaluating school districts in five key components that, based on research, have been identified to be key factors in effective school districts, and takes place every three years. 

As you may already know, Blairstown Elementary School has been designated as a “high performing district.”  Because we have satisfied the eligibility requirements, and have met the required number of QSAC indicators in each of the five mandated QSAC areas, we are able to apply for and receive a waiver of the full regulatory process with an equivalency application.  We have already informed our Board of Education, district professional staff, and, most recently, the Blairstown PTG. 


We are greatly pleased to be eligible for this equivalency and to be designated as “High Performing” and will continue to strive to deliver the best possible instruction for all our young learners.
