North River Collaborative
North River Collaborative (NRC) is a multi-purpose, educational organization formed in 1976 to serve as an extension of school districts. The member districts of Abington, Avon, Bridgewater-Raynham, East Bridgewater, Hanover, Rockland, Stoughton, West Bridgewater and Whitman-Hanson work together to provide high-quality, cost effective educational programs and services. The Board of Directors is comprised of designees elected from each of the member districts' School Committees. To view the North River Collaborative Organizational Chart click here.
NRC believes that all students should be challenged to learn in a caring environment which respects diversity and values lifelong learning. Our goal is for all of our students to become independent, productive citizens who are successfully integrated into their community. We are proud that our students are challenged to learn in caring, inclusive environments within our member district schools.
NRC is multi-purpose collaborative providing programs to over 200 students with disabilities ages 3 to 22 from our member districts and over 20 surrounding communities. The Collaborative provides over 800 students with educationally related services such as speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and English language instruction.
