A Message from Our Superintendent

Dear East Orange School District Staff, Parents, and Community:

The East Orange School District’s motto has been and continues to be “Rising to a Standard of Excellence.” Like so many districts throughout the state, however, we are struggling to do more with less. The high cost of educating our students on a budget that has not seen a significant increase in approximately 3 years and a budget deficit has led to the recent layoffs, which impacted every department and school in the district. We recognize the need to be fully staffed for the 2016-2017 school year and will call back laid off staff as current staff retire and/or resign.

Recently there has been conversation regarding the district’s reorganization, and this has caused emotions to run high. On May 26, 2016, Board President Bergson Leneus, Board Member Terry Swanson-Tucker, and Acting Superintendent of Schools Dr. Gloria Watson had the pleasure of meeting with a room full of parents and shared the reason for reorganization and administrative transfers that were made after much planning, consideration or administrators’ strengths, school needs, and careful thought. We will continue to have ongoing dialogue, but we want you to know that our primary goal is to improve instructional programs that will lead to positive academic outcomes for each and every one of our students.

We strongly encourage you to read the letter in its entirety.
