Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 (IDEA 2004) is the federal special education law. It gives specific requirements to ensure that students with disabilities receive the services they need to achieve their educational goals. Our goal at Bernards Township is to develop a partnership with parents, teachers, CST members, and the community to foster better outcomes for all our students. In order to facilitate that commitment we offer a wide variety of different programs to meet the diverse needs of the children in Bernards Township.
