THE BEHAVIORAL DISABILITIES PROGRAM STAFF

Just as students are carefully selected for programs of this type, the staff also has been carefully chosen. They are all committed to a “roll-up-your sleeves” philosophy of active involvement with students and projects. They see their role as teachers in the broadest possible sense. They are more than just academic instructors. They are motivators, counselors and confidants. Staffed by special education teachers, vocational teachers, school social workers, nurses,  and highly trained teacher assistants, the diversity of talents and personalities provides virtually all students with positive role models who take personal interest in their progress.

Computer Technology

The school district has spared no expense to offer the latest in technology for students. State-of-the-art computers in classrooms and campus labs support academic instruction and offer opportunities for career training. Assistive technology is widely available to enable most students to benefit from computer technology. In the information age, students at the Burlington County Special Services School District are given every opportunity to develop their technology skills.

 Admission

Only those students whose special needs are so unique that they cannot benefit from programs in the local school district are eligible for admission to the Burlington County Special Services School District. Local districts seeking admission of a student to the Special Services School District may submit a letter of application to the Admissions Office, including current copies of Child Study Team evaluations.


 Cost

The Burlington County Special Services School District is a public school district providing programs and services to the special needs children of Burlington County and the region at no cost to parents.

 Our record of successful graduates who have accomplished great things in the world of work, and students who have returned to successful experiences in their local schools following a placement here, are indicative of the positive effect our programs offer. Our track record speaks for itself!
