  • The Somerset County Educational Services Commission (SCESC) has been providing shared educational services and programs for schools and their students since 1978.  Established under New Jersey Title 18A, the SCESC has continued to grow and adapt to the ever changing needs of public and non-public schools.

     The State of New Jersey mandates that school districts provide instruction and educational services to all students regardless of their level of need.  The SCESC assists school districts in providing those services through a variety of programs to all school-aged populations in Somerset and neighboring counties.

     The SCESC is funded by tuition from local sending districts, state and federal grants, and private sector donations, if applicable. Many school districts reduce overall costs by sharing services with the SCESC.  The SCESC caters to the individual needs of school districts, schools, parents, but most importantly, the students.
