Lumberton Campus meets the unique educational and therapeutic needs of High
School students who have not experienced success in the more traditional
classroom settings, the 45-acre Lumberton Campus on Ark Road offers
unparalleled opportunities. With the goal of preparing students to enter the
world of work with solid, entry-level skills, positive attitudes, a sense of
responsibility, positive role models and self-worth, the program features a hands-on approach to
learning. Students participate in carefully selected projects which are
closely related to the instruction which takes place in the classrooms.

This year at Lumberton Campus, we will providing a strong focus on developing employment skills. We will be developing and emphasizing skills needed and used in the following areas: automotive, building trades, nail technology, business & technology, as well as culinary arts. As part of this process, we will be implementing a skills inventory checklist and update it as students' progress through the course and master the skills. Upon completion at the Lumberton campus, a student will be issued a skills transcript that will identify the skills learned in each of the four career paths noted. The student, depending upon how long he/she is at our campus, will be in a position to earn industry credentials that equate to job opportunities.

THE BEHAVIORAL DISABILITIES PROGRAM STAFF
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
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.
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.

district providing programs and services to the special needs children of
Burlington County and the region at no cost to parents.
