The Springboard Program is one of the most unique programs in our District in that it is located in a house rather than a school building.
Our program utilizes two houses, one in Garfield and the other in Paramus, which greatly enhances transition opportunities for our students. The opportunity afforded us to utilize residential homes has had an enormous impact on our program's goal: To assist our students in achieving individual independence as they transition from school to adult life. Our students, all of whom have completed their academic requirements, benefit from our “Life Centered Career Education” curriculum that is designed to promote personal growth in Daily Living Skills, Personal Social Skills, and Occupational Guidance and Preparation.
The Springboard Program was honored with the Innovations in Special Education Award from the NJ School Boards Association. All of our staff and students are justly proud of this accomplishment.
If you would like further information about the Springboard Program, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to us.
At the Visions Becton program our goal is to assist our students in achieving their academic and career goals. They continue to successfully participate in Career Awareness, experiencing different jobs that are available to them. Their academic lessons are supported by Internet-based activities and technology including SmartBoards.Read more...
