Board of Education
The Millburn Township School District takes pride in its communication efforts with all stakeholders of the District. To ensure that your concerns or issues are heard by the appropriate individual who can provide you with a speedy response, the Board of Education and Superintendent ask that you follow the Channels of Communication outlined below. Our goal is to address concerns and issues quickly and efficiently through the individual(s) directly involved.
Many parent and community questions are easily and completely answered by communication directly with the educator in charge of the class or program. Each situation should be first addressed at whatever level the initial action was taken with appeals moving on to the next level on the chain of command. The easiest way to communicate is via e-mail, and a phone call is the next preferable way. Contact information such as e-mail addresses can be found on the staff directory listing found at each school under the Contact Us tab. These Channels of Communication will ensure a structured communications opportunity for all stakeholders and will allow the District to respond to all inquiries in a timely manner.
If you are not sure who to contact for your specific question, please call us at 973-376-3600.
