Instruction and Assessment
Assistant Superintendent Dr. Sharon Vitella oversees Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment for the Mount Laurel Schools. Dr. Vitella
works with teams of highly-skilled staff members specializing in their subject areas to develop Mount Laurel's Curriculum Guides. She also assists in the development of staff training to implement programs effectively in the classroom.
 
Our curriculum is based on best-practice research and study in all subject areas. Each area of curriculum is routinely revised with the most current knowledge and all of our guides meet the Core Content Curriculum Guidelines as established by the New Jersey Department of Education.
 
Assessment of student skills is conducted in our schools utilizing the state-mandated Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers  (PARCC) test each spring for Language Arts and Mathematics. Science skills are tested in Grade 4 and Grade 8 only via the New Jersey Assessment of Skills and Knowledge (NJASK) test.
