The Schechter Day School Network is a voluntary association of Jewish day schools spanning 17 states in the U.S. and 2 provinces in Canada. The Network operates under the umbrella of The United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism. The member schools are independent and each has its own board of directors or board of trustees. However, they share an affiliation and identification with the religious philosophy, principles, beliefs and practices of the Conservative movement.
The Schechter Day School Network provides services, resources, professional development, leadership training and support to its affiliated schools and their professional and lay leaders throughout North America. We strive to promote collaboration among member schools and to foster the development of curriculum, materials, and methods for acquiring knowledge of the spiritual and ethical values of Judaism, the traditions of Judaism, the skills of Jewish living, and the performance of mitzvoth. Through networking and sharing resources, the Schechter Network builds relationships among schools and offers opportunities for lay leaders and professionals to enhance their abilities to work as collaborative and successful partners.
Solomon Schechter Day Schools are open to Jewish children whether or not their parents are affiliated with the Conservative Movement and do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, age, national origin, ancestry, creed, marital or parental status or sexual orientation.
