Student Testing Assistance Referrals & Support


The Macks Center for Jewish Education administers the Student Testing Assistance Referrals & Support program (STARS). This program provides subsidized testing for children with special needs.

Through this program, CJE will:

  • Recommend appropriate testing for students
  • Make a provider list available to all families 
  • Pre-approve families for financial assistance, before assessment takes place
  • Pay providers up to 50 percent of remaining balance, after insurance reimbursement, up to $1,000 per child

In order to participate in the STARS program, families must have already contacted their public school system and completed the “Child Find” process before applying to the CJE for financial assistance. Families must apply before assessment takes place.

For more information, please contact Martha Goodman at or 410-735-5012.

CJE is an agency funded by THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.
