Hello!  In an effort to continue our pursuit of life-long learning and build on our foundation of excellence, the Moorestown Township Public Schools and the MTPS Board of Education has embarked on a strategic planning journey.  Our last strategic plan was compiled and launched over 3 years ago, and while we continue to work on some of those goals and objectives, our commitment to offering the best educational opportunities for our students remains one of our foremost priorities.  With that in mind, we continue to challenge ourselves through reflection, collaboration, analysis and planning, AND we want you to be a part of the process!  In partnership with W.H. Adams & Associates, LLC, we ask that you participate in the following survey.  Your perceptions and those of other community and district stakeholders, will provide us with some of the insight needed to construct a plan for our district for the next 3-5 years.  Additionally, we will consider the impact of our vision to guide us toward the future of education for 2030 and beyond.
 
Please answer the questions to the best of your ability.  If, however, you do not feel you have sufficient information or perspective to answer a question, please skip the question. 
 
On behalf of the Moorestown Township Public Schools and The MTPS Board of Education, thank you for taking the time in supporting our students and the future of education at MTPS!
