New Superintendent Brian Betze . Members of the school community have acknowledged Betze has coming on the heels of former superintendent John Bach’s five-year tenure.
In a letter to the entire Moorestown community (posted on the district website recently), Betze introduces himself and lays out, in general terms, his goals for the upcoming school year:
It is my pleasure to introduce myself as the new superintendent of the Moorestown Township School District. My intention from my first day forward is to continue the tradition of excellence, which is the norm here in Moorestown. Through an unrelenting commitment to children, collaboration with all district stakeholders, implementing open communication systems, and use of a high level of candor and sincerity, with your help I will ensure the most
effective learning environment for our children.
Being new to Moorestown, I have established a personal goal of making sure each student in the district knows me no later than the beginning of our winter break. Through frequent classroom visits and by attending school events, I am looking forward to achieving this goal. I also intend on being present at local events in order to meet and speak with as many parents and community members as possible in order to gain a perspective of the strengths and areas in need of improvement with our schools. Our overreaching goal should and will be constant improvement while maintaining the traditional, which has made Moorestown so successful.
We all recognize a quality education is not merely a destination, but a journey. Continuing to challenge ourselves and accept nothing less than “all means all” where every child achieves at a high level will serve as our mission every day. You have my word my decisions will always be made with our children’s best interest at heart.
It is my hope the 2012-2013 school year is the very best yet and I am looking forward to getting to know all of our students and families of the district.
Very truly yours,
Brian J. Betze
