District Town Hall Meetings

This fall, MSD of Warren Township will be creating a comprehensive strategic plan based on community input that will ensure all students and staff have the conditions necessary to develop and apply Journey of a Graduate (JoG) skills and dispositions. The Journey of a Graduate skills are a set of 6 skills and dispositions that have been identified by our community needed for success in and out of school. The JoG skills are Critical Thinking, Citizenship, Communication, Collaboration, Content Knowledge, and Resilience. These JoG skills will serve as the foundation of the district strategic plan.


One way the district will capture community input is through an online survey. Linked below is a short survey that will ask questions around our strengths as a district and help us identify areas for improvement.



Strategic Planning Survey


Town Hall Meetings will also be scheduled for our teachers, students, parents and community to collaborate in person. Elementary school Town Hall Meetings will be hosted by their feeder intermediate and middle school. Those meeting dates are below:



Monday, November 18th, 6:00 - 7:30 at Warren Central High School (WCC)


Tuesday, November 19th, 6:00 - 7:30 at Raymond Park Intermediate and Middle School (LP, LO, HA)


Thank you in advance for your participation and thank you for your continued support of MSD Warren Township Schools.


Dr. Tim Hanson


Superintendent of Schools
