About the Board of Education
The Board’s responsibilities include: setting and evaluating policy, establishing goals, overseeing that the district and the schools are well run by the administrators they have hired, and adopting a fiscally sound operating budget for the school district. Board members act on the Superintendent’s recommendations, meet with civic groups, and receive input from parents, students, and community members.
Meetings of the Board are usually held two times a month at 7:30 p.m. Work sessions are generally held on the second Tuesday in the Upper Middle School Media Center. Public action meetings are generally held on the fourth Tuesday, in the Upper Middle School Media Center. Changes in a meeting's location, starting time or topic, will be posted on the Montgomery Township Schools’ website (www.mtsd.k12.nj.us) and on Channel 14 (Patriot Media Cable TV). You may also call the Board of Education office with any questions (609) 466-7601.
Time is allotted at each regular public action meeting of the Board for Comments from the public. Parents and residents are welcome and encouraged to attend these meetings to share their interests and concerns. The Board does request that concerns be first addressed with the most direct and appropriate level of the staff in order to resolve any outstanding issues.
