Superintendent's Message

Dear Students, Teachers, Staff, Parents and Community: 

Welcome to the 2022 - 2023 school year! Through all of the challenges presented to our school district in the last two academic years, SCPS is poised for a return to normalcy this fall with few COVID-19 restrictions in place and all students in our schools. Looking back, our students, families and staff are to be commended for their resiliency and willingness to persevere through the pandemic. Looking ahead, our focus will be returning to what we do best: providing equitable, high quality instruction, and essential support and resources to the youth of Somerset County, all while continuing to prioritize the health and safety of students and staff. Our focus will be to help our students with academic growth & intervention as well as addressing even more students that have emotional needs.

Although there is still much work to be done, I could not be more pleased to see ALL of our students back in the classroom, participating in fall athletics and extracurricular activities, and enjoying the company of their peers. It truly is an exciting time as we return to what will be our first “normal” school year in three years. Thank you to our school community for sticking with us through difficult times and for all of your support. Although we are small, we are mighty! On behalf of our Board of Education and our leadership team I wish you the very best in the 2022 - 2023 school year. 

John B. Gaddis, Ed. D.
