    Lawrence Township Public Schools Explores Research-Backed Restructuring for Optimal Educational Development

    Lawrence Township Public Schools is exploring a strategic restructuring of grade level distributions to create a more developmentally and academically appropriate environment for all of our students. This research-backed initiative involves a five-year vision to transition to grade bands of third through fifth, and sixth through eighth, aligning our district with the State Department of Education recommended model. Research consistently shows that this grade level distribution better aligns with the cognitive and social-emotional development of students, providing an environment where they can thrive academically and developmentally. Lawrence Township Public Schools recognizes the importance of these transitional years and believes that this structure better prepares our students for the academic challenges ahead. Furthermore, by embracing true “upper elementary” and “middle school” models as opposed to the current hybrid, quasi-middle school approach, we address our families wish to keep our kids “young” by housing our students in an elementary building longer.

Please have your student fill out this form, or fill it out with them. It does not matter if the staff member is still employed or retired many years ago; it is the story that matters.
