Shared Services

Shared Services have been occurring in the ETSD for many years.  Shared service partnerships are currently in place with other school districts, the Evesham Township Municipal Government, local police and fire departments, and the State of New Jersey.  These shared services not only promote collegiality and teamwork, but also result in cost savings to the school district.
