Welcome to the Mount Laurel Schools!

"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.

Your Input Is Crucial To Superintendent Search

Mount Laurel's Board of Education wants to hear from all Mount Laurel residents in its search for a new superintendent of schools. What do you feel are some of the challenges the district is likely to face over the next few years? What question would you ask candidates for the position if you were conducting the interview?
Your answers to five survey questions can help direct board members to consider those things the majority feels are most important in a new school leader. Can you find a few moments to participate?
Please follow this link to include your voice in the search process. Survey responses go directly to the New Jersey School Boards Association, which is facilitating the search process with the board. Details and progress updates on the status of the search may be found on our Superintendent Search page.

Greeting New Parents, Welcoming Back Former Students, At Fall Fest

Mount Laurel School District was just one of the many community entities on hand at Saturday's Fall Festival at Laurel Acres Park. At the district table, we handed-out information about the schools, giveaways provided by our Mount Laurel Education Association (MLEA) PRIDE committee, and answered lots of questions for residents.
The other spot was used by Science Teacher Maureen Barrett from Harrington, who set-up a wading pool filled by the fire department and had her students come out to show people how to operate remotely-operated vehicles (ROVs) that the students have built.
MLEA members received a PRIDE grant to purchase giveaways, and members took turns coming out to man the table and greet residents.

Board of Education

The Mount Laurel Board of Education meets, in general, twice each month. All of our agendas are posted prior to our meetings, and 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 the meeting page for your review. Stay in the know ... visit that page often!

Board Meetings

The Board of Education's Work Session meeting for September will be held on October 20 and the Regular monthly meeting will be held on October 27 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.
