“The human capacity for burden is like bamboo-far more flexible than you'd ever believe at first glance.” – Jodi Picoult
There are several programs related to curriculum and instruction that fall under the umbrella of Special Programs. This department provides information and analyses that support continuous improvement from an academic as well as an operational perspective in the Bridgewater-Regional School District. The areas that are handled through the Office of Special Programs are:
- Support for Struggling Learners (Response to Intervention)
- NJ Standardized Testing (NJSLA, Math, ELA, Science; ACCESS for ELLs)
- Gifted and Talented Programs (AI and E, Honors and Advanced Placement)
Most areas in Special Programs are supervised by Mr. David Matonis, Supervisor of Special Programs. ESSA and Title I are administered by the Superintendent or his designee.
