Welcome to the Mount Laurel Schools!
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."
We are proud to welcome you to the Mount Laurel Township Schools' website. As a district, we have long recognized the World Wide Web as a valuable communications tool. In fact, our first site appeared in 1991, before commercialization of the medium began. A website's worth, however, is only as valuable as the information it shares.
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.
Mount Laurel Township School District is considering offering an Extended Kindergarten Option for the 2014-2015 School Year through our Community Education/Extended Day Care Program. This self-supporting program would be tuition-based and would be housed at each of our six elementary schools in the hours before and after our kindergarten sessions.
The program will focus on center-based learning with an emphasis on social-emotional development. It will be taught by qualified teachers. In order to be eligible for the Extended Kindergarten Option, students must meet all eligibility requirements and be actively enrolled in Mount Laurel’s kindergarten program for the 2014-15 school year. Eligibility requirements include Mount Laurel residency, must be five years of age by October 1, and have current immunizations.
At this point, we are asking parents to submit this online form expressing a desire to learn more about the Extended Kindergarten Option so that we can determine whether interest is sufficient to meet minimum classroom requirements.If there is enough interest, we will move forward and send further information to all of those who have submitted a form within the next several weeks.
The Mount Laurel Township Public School District is offering a low cost preschool program for a limited number of typical four to five-year-old children for the 2014-2015 school year. Classes will be held in our district elementary school buildings. These Preschool Inclusion classes will enroll preschoolers with disabilities along with typically developing children in order to provide public school opportunities according to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
Selection for the program will be by lottery. Applications for this preschool program are available at all schools, the Hattie Britt Administration Office and the Child Study Team Office, in addition to the one found on this page.
The cost of this program will be $2,250 per year (September-June). A deposit of $550 is due upon acceptance in the program. Tuition payments are made in four installments of $425 each.
We see it every day - the student who is consistently kind. Another who steps in when insults are hurled to stop potential hurt. That staff member who is always the first to volunteer or has an idea what can be done collectively to help the plight of another. They're Upstanders, and we have plenty of them. Now, a new program in our schools will honor our Upstanders. Find more information on our Upstander Campaign page.
The world-famous Harlem Wizards will take on Mount Laurel Magic, a team of principals and teachers from Mount Laurel Schools, on March 16 at Lenape High School to benefit the Harrington/Hartford PTO. The game starts at 2 p.m. Doors will open at 1:15 p.m. It is guaranteed to be an afternoon of amazing basketball talent combined with hilarious comedy! There will be a halftime show with fan interaction and a performance by the Mount Laurel Cheer Association Lightning Team. Purchase tickets by using the Ticket Order Form here or by visiting the Harlem Wizards website. Click the Buy Tickets tab and look for our game on March 16th. VIP and Reserved tickets cannot be purchased online. Any questions, please contact the Harrington/Hartford PTO.
|Mount Laurel Schools participate in the Common Core State Standards, along with other New Jersey Schools. Learn more about the Common Core Standards and what they mean specifically for your child at each grade level on our Common Core Standards webpage|
The Board of Education's Work Session meeting for March will be held on March 18 and the Regular monthly meeting will be held on March 25 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.
(Note: We have preempted the Superintendent's Column this month to announce a special honor that she no doubt would not use this space to write about herself.) On March 27, Dr. Antoinette Rath will be honored as Burlington County's Woman of the Year in Education.The announcement was made recently by the Burlington County Advisory Council on Women. The award is granted to women who have made significant contributions within their respective fields and the community while demonstrating their support of other women. In short, the council seeks women of achievement who have helped other women achieve their goals. Dr. Rath’s selection was based, in part, upon her development of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs here in Mount Laurel. Corporate partnerships formed as part of that initiative helped to expose students to working engineers, both male and female, and expand the scope of understanding about the possibilities in STEM careers. Her ongoing work in the field of education with Rutgers University, the University of Pennsylvania and the New Jersey Association of School Administrators was also considered as she works to enhance the future for new and upcoming educators.

Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) Testing MAP testing will not be conducted in the 2013-2014 school year. MAP scores from the final testing phase of the 2012-2013 school year have been used for placement in Advanced Math, Basic Skills, GAP and other Advanced Programming placement. Alternative assessment criteria for placement in special programs is currently in development for this year. That will serve as an in-house companion assessment to the new Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) beginning in 2014-2015. PARCC testing will replace the NJASK Testing in New Jersey.
More information about New Jersey's PAARC Testing may be found here.
