The Central New Jersey Consortium for Excellence and Equity

Established 2012

“Preparing Each and Every Student for Success in School Achievement, in Post-Secondary Education, and in Life”


The Central Jersey Consortium for Excellence and Equity (CJCEE) is an evolving collaboration of administrators, teachers, support staff, parents, and elementary and secondary students that are collectively committed to learning and working together to enhance the achievement and well-being of all students, as well as increasing the academic performance, engagement, and future success of traditionally underachieving students. CJCEE focuses on inter-district collaboration and shared learning for continuous improvement in eliminating the disparities in achievement and
school engagement among students.

Founded by Dr. Lynn Romeo, Professor Emeritus and Dr. James Stefankiewicz, Superintendent of Township of Ocean School District, the CJCEE has been in operation since 2012. Dr. Tina Paone, Associate Professor of Educational Counseling, coordinates the program for the School of Education. For information on the consortium, contact the School of Education, Certification, Field Placements, & School Partnership Office at 732-263-5473 or

After much consideration and input from participating districts, the academic year the CJCEE is set to make some major changes! See the flyer for more details.
