The Bridgeton school district is dedicated to providing a clean, safe and engaging environment to all students and staff. We diligently work toward the maintenance and improvements of all of the buildings while focusing on cost savings and efficiencies. This is done through the inspection, maintenance, and repair of district buildings and grounds. The department is also responsible for the planning and construction of improvements to the existing school facilities, the acquisition of new school property, and the planning and construction of new school facilities, in order to ensure school safety issues are addressed, and funding sources are monitored.
The Business Department is responsible for all aspects of school district financial management including: budgeting, accounting, payroll, accounts payable, and purchasing. Our purpose is to provide the resources necessary to achieve the alignment with the district’s mission and goals. We are dedicated to providing support to schools and departments in order to raise student achievement and provide a safe, secure learning environment. In addition, it is our responsibility to efficiently and accurately provide the schools, students, and community with budget, financial planning, and related services in order to carry out the responsibilities of the district.
It is the goal of the Bridgeton School District to provide safe and efficient transportation for all eligible students. The district provides transportation to and from school in accordance with district Board policy. It is the policy of the Board to define a remote distance as beyond one-half mile for all students grade 2-12. For the safety of our students in pre-k (4) through grade 1, we provide transportation to all of these students in our schools.
The Transportation Department receives many requests for bus/stop changes. The district is unable to accommodate requests for changes in transportation due to babysitters or daycare centers. All requests must be submitted in writing and will be handled case by case as they are received. Any change in transportation arrangements due to change of address must be submitted to your school’s registration office; no exceptions can be made.
Please allow a minimum of three to five business days to process approved changes. All revised bus passes are sent to the main office of the student’s school. Please note that bus drivers are not permitted to make changes to bus routes or stops without prior approval of the Transportation Coordinator.
To create an educational community that focuses on empowering all students through a supportive network of specialists in order for them to become successful, motivated learners. All members of the Bridgeton community will share in the responsibility of meeting the educational needs of all students.

The Office of Academic Standards of the Department of Education has been working with teams of field-based educators under the guidance of Grant Wiggins, national consultant, on a standards clarification project. The purpose of this two-phase project is to provide materials in each of the nine content areas that convey an understanding of the priorities in the current New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards and how to capture those priorities in designing local curriculum and assessments, as well as in managing local instruction across content areas.

The Quality Single Accountability Continuum (QSAC) is the Department of Education’s monitoring and evaluation system for public school districts. The system shifts the monitoring and evaluation focus from compliance to assistance, capacity-building and improvement. It is a single comprehensive accountability system that consolidates and incorporates the monitoring requirements of applicable state laws and programs and complements federally required improvements. The system focuses on monitoring and evaluating school districts in five key components that, based on research, have been identified to be key factors in effective school districts.
