We serve individuals with significant disabilities as well as meeting the specialized needs of districts and agencies. Through leadership and the collaborative efforts of staff, family, sending districts and community, the district will equip individuals with the skills necessary to successfully function in their environment.

Our History

The concerns of parents and public school districts for the education of students with serious disabilities were addressed with the establishment of the Mercer County Special Services School District in November 1977. The creation of the district was due to the cooperative efforts of the Mercer County Administration, the Board of Chosen Freeholders, the Parent Organization, the Mercer County Education Office, public school districts of the county, and state and county agencies serving students with disabilities.
