The Salem County Board of Commissioners hired the firm to conduct a thorough analysis of the educational and financial benefits and detriments of a unified Salem County school district.

The goals of a unified Salem County school district would be to improve the quality of instruction, assure educational equity and maximize savings of taxpayer dollars, according to planning documents.

Porzio, Bromberg & Newman worked with a wide array of educators throughout Salem County to compose a thorough report and analysis of the educational status and opportunities in the county.
