Over the past few weeks, we have been sharing with you information pieces about aspects of a school district’s operations. We hope you have found them interesting.    

At this time we would like to highlight our priorities starting with how our vision has helped our district move forward.

VISION

Through a forward-looking vision, complemented by action, much success has been achieved for Montville Schools.

Referendum

  • In September 2017, the voters of Montville overwhelmingly approved a $17.2 million referendum (final cost to taxpayers was $11 million due to grants offsetting costs) to provide funding for roof replacement projects, renovation of Media Centers in the middle school and 5 elementary schools, upgrade of student bathrooms in all 7 schools, update of HVAC controls in all 7 schools, update all-purpose rooms and gymnasiums in all 7 schools and complete air conditioning in remaining non air-conditioned instructional spaces in all seven schools.  These upgrades put the district in a well-equipped position to address the ventilation protocols required by the pandemic. 

Technology

  • The district is proud of its one-to-one Chromebook plan (initiated in the 2017-2018 school year). Combined with the implementation of the Schoology Learning Management Plan in September 2019, the district was ahead of many others in making the sudden transition to remote learning in March 2020.

District Communications

  • Following input from a New Website Committee, a new district website was launched in July 2019.
  • Newsletter and social media presence established.

Sustainable Jersey for Schools

  • All Montville Township Schools were re-certified as attaining Bronze Level certification through the Sustainable Jersey for Schools Program in June 2020.

Academic Acceleration/Learning Retention

  • Administered the i-Ready June 2021
  • Skill-building summer camp Grades 1-4; may continue in Summer 2022
  • Extended day opportunities before and/or after school 2-4 teachers at the Elementary level and 10 at Lazar
  • Start Strong Assessments Grades 4-12 in lieu of 2021 NJSLA
