Public and NonPublic Schools
Jo Ann Karamus
The Division of Services to Public and NonPublic Schools
The Division of Services to Public and Nonpublic Schools provides direct academic and support services to students in nonpublic schools in the following counties: Essex, Hudson, and Passaic. Our teachers, paraprofessionals, Child Study Team members and therapists provide services to students in approximately 60 nonpublic schools. Our nonpublic programs are funded in one of two ways; by the NJ Department of Education funding notices or through Federal funding allocations for programs such as Title I and IDEA-B. Districts enter into a contract with the ERESC for services for the students of their nonpublic schools.
The mission of the members of the Division of Services to Public and Nonpublic Schools is to build meaningful partnerships with the nonpublic schools and to provide high-quality educational, administrative, and support services in a cost-effective and efficient manner to meet the needs of their students.
