Ocean County Vocational Technical Schools Foundation Board
The mission of the Ocean County Vocational Technical School system is to prepare students for job placement or further education leading to successful employment.
We develop partnerships with affiliated schools, parents, business, industry and community agencies to create and deliver opportunities for students to participate in quality occupational programs and support services. These programs and services are designed to meet the needs of high school students and adult learners, as well as the requirements of employers, colleges, technical schools and the community. All students will achieve the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards at all grade levels.
The Foundation Board’s was established in 1994 to help ensure a quality education for the students of Ocean County Vocational Technical School. It was formed by a group of corporate and community leaders in Ocean County. The group is independent of, though fully supported by, the OCVTS District.
The mission of this educational foundation is to augment, supplement, and compliment OCVTS programs through the attraction of private resources for the exclusive benefit of students and staff. Contributions to the Foundation are eligible for the maximum federal income tax deduction (this is not intended as tax advice, check with your tax/legal advisor).
