Welcome to the Garden State Coalition of Schools. We appreciate your interest in GSCS.  Our superinendents and BOE members are thought leaders in their communities and beyond.  Our organization brings the voice of the state's lighthouse districts to our lawmakers in Trenton and the people of New Jersey.

GSCS is a member-driven, grass-roots organization that is directed by its 24 Trustee Districts upon the recommendations of the Executive Board.  All member districts are encouraged to send representatives to the monthly board meetings; member input and feedback are invaluable in helping GSCS present our  concerns to Trenton.

The GSCS meetings calendar can be found at our website at http://www.gscschools.org/gsc/About%20GSCS/GSCS%20Meetings%20Calendar%202017-2018.html/_top. Our monthly Board of Trustees meetings feature great speakers and are a valuable source of information on state-level developments and political news and also give members a great chance to network.

GSCS is the only education focused advocacy group in New Jersey that represents both Board of Education members and superintendents.  GSCS is seen in Trenton as a grassroots group that is focused on the "big picture" of K-12 education in New Jersey.

Dues for the 2020-2021 are $2500. The dues are prorated to the month a district strikes its resolution to join GSCS.

If you have questions or need further information, please feel free to contact me at gscschools@gmail.com or 732 / 618-5755 [cell].

We look forward to working with you.

Elisabeth Ginsburg, GSCS Executive Director
