Scott Kallensee, Chartwells Director of Dining Services and Beth McCann, Chartwells Assistant Director of Dining Services presented Superintendent Howard Lerner, Director of Instruction Tara Bohan and the staff and students of New Bridges with a generous donation of raised beds and garden soil for our horticulture program. New Bridges students have been planting herbs and vegetables in the greenhouse and will soon fill the beds donated by Chartwells with summer vegetables. This week we harvested our first group of lettuce which was made into delicious salads for staff and students. Our school community is looking forward to expanding our crop making us a farm to table school!

On Thursday, October 13, 2016 BCSS Superintendent Dr. Howard Lerner and BCSS Director of Instruction Ms. Tara Bohan participated in kick-off events at Holy Name Medical Center and Hackensack University Medical Center for Project Search. In partnership with the Bergen County Workforce Development Board, the New Jersey Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, the Arc of Bergen and Passaic, Holy Name Medical Center, HUMC, and New Jersey Friendship House, BCSS has been proud to collaborate on the initiation of a Project Search program in Bergen County. Joining in the event were Bergen County Executive James J. Tedesco III, Freeholder Vice Chairwoman Tracy Zur, New Jersey DVR Acting Director Mr. Brian Fitzgibbons, and Bergen County Workforce Development Board Executive Director Tammy Molinelli.

 

Project SEARCH seeks to provide students with disabilities in their last year of high school a chance to explore careers and develop transferable skills through a one-year, business-led, unpaid internship program. Through the course of an academic year, students participate in employment-related instruction and rotate through two to three internships that are individually crafted to capitalize on each student’s individual interests and vocational goals and potential. The on-site team, student, family, vocational rehabilitation counselor, and school representatives meet regularly to discuss issues, progress, and career goals. Graduates are prepared to meet employer expectations and to move into a job development phase. Graduates leave the program with a professional portfolio which includes a resume, solid professional references, recommendations, and real-world work experience. According to 2013-14 Project SEARCH data, these program have placed over 73% of their graduates into employment.

Bergen County Special Services is committed to supporting Project Search as part of its mission to enable each individual to realize his or her highest potential and to become a self-directed and contributing member of society.
