Mission & Vision

Mission Statement

The Cape May County Special Services School District is committed to providing effective educational programs that meet the unique social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and career needs of students with special needs. By providing specialized academic instruction in the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, vocational and career development, functional life skills and individualized therapeutic intervention, the district will enable each learner to realize his or her highest potential as a contributing member of society.

Vision Statements

  • We believe that our schools should teach Social Skills, Academics, Functional Life Skills and Job/Vocational skills appropriate to each child’s age and ability level, resulting in a full life and recognition of his or her value to society.
  • We believe that a successful student is able to meet his/her fullest potential in Social Skills, Academics, Functional Life Skills, and Vocational Skills and be prepared to function as independently as possible as a productive member of the community.
  • We believe that an excellent school educates the whole child, provides a safe, secure environment, embraces the community, and respects students, staff and families.
  • We believe that an effective instructional/therapeutic program is one in which there is a positive caring environment where students feel safe and secure, expectations are clear and consistent, and students are engaged in their learning.
  • We believe that a good school administrator is one who challenges, guides, supports and collaborates with staff in a respectful, non-judgmental manner, to provide an effective, high-quality instructional program.
  • We believe that an effective school faculty is one that shares the district vision and promotes the district mission within a supportive, professional, and collaborative school community.
We are Cape May County Special Services where compassion and excellence in education come together to make a meaningful difference in the lives of the students we serve.
