The Monmouth Ocean Educational Services Commission is a public, non-profit agency which provides educational programs for school districts, students with special needs, parents and staff members of our member districts, and other Educational Services Commissions.
We assist school districts administratively through cooperative purchasing programs; cooperative transportation, staff development and assisting in meeting federal grant compliance for both public and non public schools. Additionally we provide Child Study Team Services and After School Child Care.
Founded in 1979 we offer programs and services geared to local school districts’ individual educational and administrative needs that are affordable and of high quality. We are governed by a board of directors elected by a representative assembly of one representative from each of our member districts.
The target student population is those students who are emotionally disturbed, neurologically impaired, or those who are “at risk” of dropping out of school prior to receiving a high school diploma. Additional student populations include summer school, on line and in a traditional classroom setting, and the New Jersey Virtual School where students can take classes anytime and anyplace that has computer access. In all cases our staff is fully certified by the State of New Jersey, and meets both federal and state highly qualified requirements. All our courses meet the State of New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards.
Adults in the community have the opportunity to participate in educational and enrichment courses offered through our Monmouth Adult Education Commission (MAECOM) Courses are also available for ABE/GED/ESL.
