Montgomery Township School District

Office of Instructional Services

At the heart of all the efforts of the Office of Assessment, Curriculum and Assessment is the vision of the school district to see "every child thriving scholastically, physically, socially and emotionally," a phrase taken from Goal 2 of the Strategic Plan that the Montgomery Township School Board recently approved.

Mrs. Nancy Gartenberg Superintendent of Schools
Mrs. Deborah Sarmir

Assistant Superintendent of Schools for Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment
Ms. Fiona Borland Director of Technology
Mr. Ron Zalika
Director of Curriculum
Mr. Damian Pappa
Director of Assessment and Accountability
Mrs. Lucianne Smith
