A Message from Our Superintendent

Greetings East Orange School District Family,

I hope your summer has been filled with fun, relaxation and time well spent with family and friends. It is with great enthusiasm that I officially welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. Here in the East Orange School District (EOSD) we will continue to “develop leaders one student at a time.” I anticipate this being an extremely exciting, challenging, innovative, and productive school year.

Our primary goal this year is improving teaching, learning and student achievement as we prepare all of our students for college, careers, and life in high performing schools. We all know that effective teaching results in quality student learning. Effective strategies and practices implemented by teachers in the classrooms will play a critical role in achieving our primary goal. However, in order to get the desired results we are capable of achieving, it is going to take hard/smart work, dedication, commitment, and excellence from all EOSD staff members and stakeholders. It must be a collaborative team effort!

I Iook forward to working with you, and I am excited about what the future holds for our students as we expand opportunities for them by improving teaching and learning in every classroom, in all of our safe, clean, welcoming schools. Together, we will strive to exemplify excellence in all that we do and make a positive difference in the lives of our students. We must be champions for children!

Please take a moment to read the entire 2017-2018 welcome back letter.
