Students at the SBJC MS/HS experienced something new in Mrs. Sorrentino's Health classes this semester. They were excited to learn the "Hands Only - CPR" technique as part of the CPR in Schools training initiative by the American Heart Association. Students learned how the "CPR Hands Only" training can save a person's life as well as how and when to use an AED. As part of the program, students also practiced using an AED. Students watched a video on CPR & First Aid technique prior to practicing on their own mannequin. This learning experience provided students with the knowledge of a very important life skill.

Seventh and eight grade students who visited the SBJC STEAM lab this fall were challenged to design an original model of their town that would best serve the needs of the citizens. Our student suburban innovators employed the engineering design process, TinkerCAD (computer-aided design software), and 3D printers to create their model cities.

School Announcements
Welcome to the South Bergen Jointure Commission Website!
The South Bergen Jointure Commission is a state approved Board of Education whose mission is to provide services to participating local school districts, with an emphasis on shared services.
It is governed by a Commission composed of fourteen trustees, each a member of a participating school district and appointed by their respective Boards of Education.
The Commission has all the powers and authority of a Board of Education. The Commission is funded entirely by income derived from the provision of services and/or by assessments.
The Jointure Commission serves as a lead agency for the purposes of creating consortiums or cooperative enterprises. It provides services in the following areas:
•  Special Education Classes
•  Personnel that are shared by communities

Special Education Classes
Presently, the South Bergen Jointure Commission provides special education classes for children who are preschool, autistic or multiply handicapped. Classes are located on three campuses which are located in Lyndhurst, Maywood, Lodi, Rutherford and Moonachie. The programs offered provide all the services listed in a child's IEP. The campuses have speech therapists, occupational and physical therapists (physical and occupational therapy assistants are not used), music, art, physical education, psychologist and social worker. The program for autism uses the applied behavior/discreet trial method as its primary approach. As needed, other approaches are introduced to prepare the student for transitioning into other classes.

The South Bergen Jointure Commission employs psychologist, social workers, LDT-Consultants, art and music teachers, curriculum director and special education transitional counselor. These employees are assigned to participating districts on a partial week basis. Districts in need of a part-time professional could engage the Jointure Commission to employ that individual.
Occupational and Physical Therapy
 The South Bergen Jointure Commission employs OT and PT personnel to provide services to the participating district.

As a state approved Coordinating Transportation Services Agency (CTSA), the South Bergen Jointure Commission provides coordination of transportation for 40 Bergen County School Districts. The Hasbrouck Heights Board office center serves as the central office for receipt of all transportation requests from participating districts. Transportation is coordinated and/or arranged for special education, regular education and non-public school children. The South Bergen Jointure Commission presently services the member districts with over 500 routes. Public, non-public and special education transportation are coordinated to maximize the vehicles use on each route, including athletic and field trips.

The South Bergen Jointure Commission employs a full-time Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction who assists the local districts in coordination of activities, development of curriculum, to include core content standards, coordination and implementation of assessment and general coordination of professional development.
