PCC Contributes to The Center School’s New HVAC System

For immediate release

The Center School,Somerset NJ installed new HVAC unit.The Center School has implemented a new, cost efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning system with assistance from Professional Climate Control (PCC) of East Hanover.   When The Center School determined that their building was in need of a new HVAC system, they received multiple quotes and vendors willing to do the job.   Only Professional Climate Control and Trane were willing to retrofit existing equipment while upgrading other equipment to create the final system resulting in over a million dollars in savings on the capital expense.

The school’s original system was all electric resulting in hefty monthly utility bills. The new system will yield cost efficiencies that will cover the cost of the expense in 3-5 years. In addition, PCC has donated 10% of the cost of the upgrade to the school.

The Center School is a private, non-profit, state-accredited facility for bright, learning-disabled students founded in 1971. The school serves over 100 students from upwards of 60 school districts throughout New Jersey.

Professional Climate Control is a Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning company with a 30-year history in East Hanover, New Jersey. The customer base includes many New Jersey schools, businesses and municipalities. They can be reached online at www.professionalclimatecontrol.com

The “New” Center School Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP – Franklin Township Mayor Brian Levin, Assemblyman Upendra Chivukula and representatives from The Somerset Country Business Partnership and the Tri-Country Chamber were on hand today to cut the ribbon for The Center School’s new facility at 2 Riverview Drive.

The Center School, founded in 1971 as a private, non-profit state-accredited school for bright, learning-disabled students, has finally found their “home” in Franklin Township after operating in temporary quarters in Branchburg after a fire claimed their building in Highland Park. Executive Director Marcie Fiorentino welcomed all the guests and gave a short, heartfelt speech on the difference The Center School made not only in each child’s life, but how they also made a difference in the lives of each family.

“We really want to thank everyone involved in making this wonderful new facility possible,” said Fiorentino. “Everyone has been so welcoming and we are looking forward to becoming part of the community.”

Children with learning disabilities and school adjustment problems experience difficulties in all aspects of their lives as well as in school. These disabilities affect academic achievement, peer relationships, family life, and the development of a positive self-image. The Center School provides a supportive educational environment in which each student may reach his or her potential for academic, emotional and physical health and this is accomplished by carefully selected, dedicated staff working in unison with the student, the parents/guardians, and the sending district.

The Center School offers complete education from K through 12-PLUS, serving between 55 and 65 school districts each year and they are committed to helping each student become as self-sufficient and successful as possible. Disabilities served by The Center School include:

– Asperger’s Syndrome
– Anxiety Disorders/OCD, PTSD, School Phobia, etc.
– Dyslexia Spectrum disorder: reading, spelling, written language
– Mood Disorders/Bipolar, Depression
– Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
– Oppositional Defiant Disorder
– Adjustment Disorders
– Motor/Sensory Integration Deficits

The Center School has clinical staff that includes full time social workers, a psychologist, an art therapist and a visiting psychiatrist that consults weekly to assess students and meet with staff. Applications are accepted throughout the school year. The application process involves the following:

– referral information about the student from the Child Study Team, parents, and/or private educational consultants – a review of clinical records and evaluations
– an interview and informal screening of the applicant
– an interview of parents/guardians by a counselor – interpretation and discussion of screening results with parents and case manager
– prompt placement decision

“Anyone is welcome to call with questions regarding admission,” said Fiorentino. “Please call me on (908) 253–3870.”
