Welcome to the Mount Laurel Schools!

Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
"The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue."
Edward R. Murrow

Mount Laurel's Board of Education and Administration have established policies and procedures that dictate transparency in all aspects of our operation. You will find board of education meeting agendas, exhibits and minutes posted here each month. Our annual district budget, guides to the curriculum used in our programs and our complete district policy manual are also posted.

But, as Edward R. Murrow noted long before the advent of the Internet, misinformation often travels swiftly. We hope that our website opens the door to conversation with those who use it. If ever you come to this site to confirm information you have heard and are unable to find that validation, please use this link to contact us and pose the question directly. As partners in the education of the children of Mount Laurel, it is incumbent upon each of us to make intelligent use of the tools we have at our disposal.

Did You Know You Can Get Connected Affordably?

Over 1 million families have connected to the Internet at home thanks to a Comcast program called Internet Essentials. Eligible families can attain Internet service for $9.95 a month, and may even qualify for a low-cost computer. Even families that have previous unpaid bills with Comcast may qualify for this service.

PARCC Update: What To Expect On Student Score Reports

The mid-year Performance Assessment for Readiness for College and Career (PARCC) testing period has concluded, but details continue to come forward from the Department of Education on what to expect as this new assessment moves forward.

In the interim, this link provides new information about the student score reports that will be generated, and what parents might expect.

Low Cost Preschool Program Offered for 2015-2016 School Year

The Mount Laurel Township Public School District is offering a low cost preschool program for a limited number of four to five-year-old children for the 2015-2016 school year.

Board of Education


Did you know that the Mount Laurel Board of Education meets, in general, twice each month? All of our agendas are posted prior to our meetings, and our minutes are posted on the Board Meeting page once they have been approved. All presentations from staff and administrators made during board meetings are also posted on our meeting page for your review. Stay in the know ... visit that page often!

Board Meetings

The Board of Education's Work Session meeting for April will be held on April 21 and the Regular monthly meeting will be held on April 28 at the Hattie Britt Board of Education Offices, 330 Mount Laurel Road. These meetings are open to the public. The Board welcomes public participation in meetings, and you will find complete agendas and minutes on our webpage throughout the year.

Superintendent

During the month of March, students in Grades 3-8 in our schools will spend approximately five hours testing their knowledge of Language Arts and Math.
 
For our purposes as a New Jersey Public School District, the mandate is clear. We are compelled to administer the PARCC Test to students in Grades 3-8, both mid-year and at year’s end. Here in Mount Laurel, we stand ready to do that. Over the past two years, we have made the necessary technology available. We have prepared students on how to use that technology to “scroll through” the new computerized test. We have shared some of the new terminology that will likely be used in the test, and have supported the sort of creative thinking that will be required in responding to PARCC questions.

OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the Mount Laurel Township School District is to prepare all children to be successful citizens and workers in the 21st century. As aligned with the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards, this includes educating students to read with comprehension, write clearly, compute accurately, think critically, reason, discover, innovate, collaborate, and use information to solve problems.
