SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The Spotswood School District is reaching out to the Spotswood, Helmetta and Milltown communities via blast emails and social media. The district is asking residents, parents, alumni, upperclassmen, business owners in addition to the system's staff and volunteers to complete a 15 minute online survey to assist the district's in planning for the future.

"The Spotswood School District is looking for the input of our community to help inform the Strategic Planning Process," explained Superintendent Graham Peabody via email. "This process will provide the foundation for their work moving forward, providing clarity, direction and focus for the district by addressing their mission, their vision and their goals. As these questions are answered, the strategic plan will define what will be achieved when it comes to understanding and defining what student success looks like within the district."

The survey directs questions towards all aspects of the school district's operations as well as the overall perception of Spotswood schools among community members. The survey can be accessed by clicking on the following link, which is also available on the Spotswood School District's website. It will remain available on the web until 12 p.m. on November 17.

A copy of the survey can also be obtained at the Office of the Superintendent for people without or with limited internet access to fill out. The Spotswood Office of the Superintendent is located behind Spotswood High School on 105 Summerhill Road.
