The Millburn Township School District’s Strategic Planning process will officially begin on Sunday, March 11 with a Community Kickoff planning session. All community members – current and past school parents, grandparents, retirees, teachers, staff, parents, administrators, and high school students are invited to provide input into the Strategic Plan that will develop a blueprint for the future of the Millburn Schools. Those who have already volunteered to participate should also plan to attend.
The Kickoff will be held in the Multi-purpose room at Glenwood School, 325 Taylor Road South, Short Hills, from 2 to 5 p.m. on March 11. Participation of the community in the gathering of input is a crucial factor in the development of a strong strategic plan, so it is essential that a wide cross-section of the community attend. Participants will be divided up into discussion groups facilitated by school district teachers and staff. Each group will discuss and then share their responses to the following guided questions:
· Question 1: What does it mean to be well educated in today's global society? What should our graduates understand, know and be able to do?
· Question 2: How could this inform what we do in the Millburn Township School district?
· Question 3: What issues/questions does this raise for us?
For planning purposes, attendees are asked to RSVP by Wednesday, March 7. An interactive RSVP Form is available on the website atwww.millburn.org under “News.” Or participants may email an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the names of those who plan to attend, whether they are adult and/or high school student participants, and whether they would take advantage of childcare (for children 3 or older) if available.
