BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP BOARD OF EDUCATION

Burlington Township Schools believes in "All Students Achieving" through providing the best programs, the safest schools in coordination with a highly engaged community to operate the most effective and efficient district. It is the Mission of the Burlington Township School District to develop the intellectual, creative, and social potential of each child through an active partnership with all members of the community. To that end, the District annually sets goals to promote the achievement of all students. The goals are set at the district level and are supported by the goals of the board, administration and staff.
