We are the SBJC
AT THE SBJC, WE'RE PREPARING OUR STUDENTS FOR POST-SCHOLASTIC LIFE BY
Unlocking the Potential of Every Student
The SBJC is a public New Jersey school district whose classrooms are not defined by walls and whose students are not defined by their classifications. We focus on the development of our 300+ students' social, emotional, and academic needs.
Program for Preschoolers with Disabilities (PSD)
The philosophy in all of our PSD classrooms is students first. When you visit an SBJC PSD classroom, what you find is an environment that is child friendly with students participating in programs focusing on intensive and early intervention.
Program for Students with Emotional Regulation Impairment (ERI)
Our Emotional Regulation Impairment Program philosophy is to provide comprehensive supports to the child and their family, with a focus on the whole child. We take several measures in order to achieve this approach, including: district-wide behavior system; classrooms staffed at a 2:1 ratio; positive behavior supports; foster reinforcement-rich environment; and replacement behaviors are taught and reinforced.
Program for Students with Multiple Disabilities (MD)
Our Multiple Disabilities program blends a curriculum of academic and functional skills to provide students with specialized learning to foster their independence.
Program for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)
Our Autism Program uses Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) as its primary approach in order to alter behaviors and positively influence how learning takes place. All classes have a 2:1 student to staff ratio. We utilize centers-based instruction focusing on academic, social-emotional, communication, and functional living skills.
18-21 Transition Program
Transition is designed to establish a vision for the future for our students by providing them with instruction and training in all areas of adulthood. Programs vary for each student's unique needs, strengths, and interests.
The SBJC has partnered with Felician University to provide discounted tuition to every educator that works in a member district. But beyond this, the SBJC also collaborates with Felician's International Center for Autism Disability Research to provide professional development services, and Felician's Lodi Campus houses one of our early childhood campuses.
