A Path to Success 2030: Next Steps
The Community Survey soliciting opinion on a new three-year plan for the Mount Laurel Schools has closed, and the data collected is being analyzed. The final step in our Strategic Planning Initiative is to form committees to begin drafting the action plans for each of the eight categories identified as priorities in the public sessions held in December and January. They are: Students, Special Needs, Curriculum & Instruction, Community, Teachers & Staff, Full-Day Kindergarten, Facilities and Communication.
The Larchmont School Community will learn, grow, and work together respectfully to fulfill our shared responsibility to develop confident student learners who demonstrate character and achieve academic excellence.
We are Larchmont…learning, growing, and working together!
