Office of the Superintendent

  •  Superintendent

    Welcome to the Mount Holly Township Public School District website. It is an honor and a privilege to serve as your Superintendent of Schools.

    The Superintendent Webpage will introduce you to district goals and performance, and guide you through the district’s Educational Strategy, a strategic plan to guide the District toward an excellent education experience for every student.

    As your Superintendent, I want you to know three things. I love this town, its community, and most importantly, its children. I am passionate about the power of education and its effect on all of us.  I am determined to lead the district to a future marked by sustained school improvement. The 2018/2019 school year begins my fourth year as your Superintendent. However, I have been an educator in Mount Holly for 17 years. 

    In the Mount Holly Township Public School District, we expect the best. We expect the best from every employee; we expect the best from our parents and the immediate community, and, we expect the best from our students. Our school district is a society that educates and cares for over 1000 students, ages 3-14. It is our responsibility to demand excellence from each and every person in the community so that each and every child has the chance to become productive citizens and so that we can successfully prepare him/her for college   and/or a career. Together, we will cultivate the capacity for lifelong learners, the creativity for innovation, and the curiosity for exploration.

    I am excited to share that the 2018/2019 school year begins the second implementation of our Educational Strategy. Our strategic plan is titled, “The Future is Now.” Although we have designed a five year plan, the future is now. Now is the time to make a difference in the community. Now is the time to stand for something bigger than ourselves. Now is the time to show students the power of education. Now is the time to expect the best from all school district stakeholders. With an approved educational strategy, we are bound by our new vision, our new mission and our defined core values. This is our path to success. I invite you to review our strategic plan by clicking here and to join the five-year initiative.

    We welcome you to visit and inquire about our district, our school, and our programs. It is an honor to build the future with you. 

    Sincerely,
    James DiDonato
    Superintendent of Schools
