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 busing
•  Regular Education busing
•  Non-public school busing
•  Athletic and Field Trip busing
•  Professional Development
•  Curriculum Coordination and Development
•  Coordination of Transitional Counseling for participating districts
•  Coordination of School-to-Work programs for participating districts
•  Provide programs for extended school year in special education
•  Provide occupational and physical therapy to participating districts

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.

Personnel
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.

Transportation
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.

Curriculum Coordination and Instructional Improvement
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.

Transitional Counseling in Special Education
The South Bergen Jointure Commission employs a full-time Transitional Counselor to assist the local districts, participating in a State Vocational grant, to provide transitional counseling to their students in the secondary special education programs.

School-to-Work
A “School-to-Work” counselor and program is provided to the local participating districts. High school and middle school faculty are trained to deliver a school-to-work program for children in 8 th grade to 12 th grade.
