They are recognized leaders in providing innovative, caring and supportive approaches that help school districts meet the needs of students with significant disabilities in the most appropriate and cost-effective public school setting.



I am continually impressed by the caring, thoughtful staff at BCSSSD. This was my daughter’s first year and they went “above and beyond” to help her make the transition. I appreciated the feedback I received from her teachers…I felt I was part of the team in decisions about her program.

As I watched from my car, my three-year-old son walked off his first school bus…no speech, required a special diet…multi-disabled. I was terrified for him. But, I saw at least three staff members welcome him…and escort him where he needed to go. That was 13 years ago. Today he still gets that same warm welcome. We are so pleased with the young man my son is growing to be and the school has been very instrumental in this.

The Deaf and Hard of Hearing students and staff at Gloucester County Special Services School District’s Bankbridge Elementary’s AD program, worked in group music therapy to create our signed interpretation of “This Is Me.” A special thanks to the Gloucester County Institute of Technology students involved with the video.
