The Council and Educational Community of Passaic County values our educators and educational services providers for their commitment to providing a quality education to our children. As a way of thanking them, and with assistance from sponsors, the Council had the opportunity to recognize the recipients of the 2018 Governor’s Educator/Educational Services Provider of the Year award on May 11, 2018 at The Brownstone House. This recognition distinguishes well-qualified educators and educational services professionals throughout Passaic County and the State of New Jersey. It is a program established by the New Jersey Department of Education to not only thank professionals in the education field for their outstanding service but to also help increase the stature of their profession, and to continue to attract talented individuals to teaching and educational services careers.
