The Educational Leadership Foundation of New Jersey (ELFNJ) was formed to advance the governance of New Jersey’s public schools, through training and research.
The Educational Leadership Foundation of New Jersey assists the New Jersey School Boards Association in fulfilling its mission to advance public education by securing resources to support school board professional development. Programs funded by ELFNJ, in partnership with the New Jersey School Boards Association, work to advance student achievement and improve school board governance, and in the past year touched on areas ranging from sustainability to school safety.
How We’re Governed
Formed in 2008, the Foundation serves New Jersey’s local boards of education, public charter school boards of trustees, other public entities and non-profit organizations. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of eleven voting members and one non-voting member, who represent education, government, business, and the non-profit community.
