A Message from Our Superintendent

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

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you back to the East Orange School District for the 2014-2015 school year. I hope each of you had a restful, relaxing, and joyous summer.

During the 2013-2014 school year, we worked hard to implement the state mandated teacher and principal evaluation systems. We also participated in the field testing of the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) assessments.

I would like to inform you about exciting changes that will occur this school year. We will:

  • Increase the number of career and technical education programs in East Orange Campus High School and Tyson Middle/High School
  • Teach and assess the New Jersey Model Curriculum for English language arts and mathematics in grades 3-12
  • Implement a new mathematics program, Go Math, in grades K-8
  • Incorporate grade 7 into STEM Academy
  • Purchase computer technology in preparation for the PARCC assessments
  • Continue to implement the new teacher and principal evaluation systems
  • Welcome a new assistant superintendent of curriculum, Dr. Gayle W. Griffin and a new director of educational support and parent service, Ms. Gloria Watson

This year, as every year, we are committed to providing meaningful educational experiences for all children enrolled within the district. Our focus is on continuous student academic growth, staff professionalism, and parent engagement. Please be reminded of the following:

  • We expect all 10-month staff to report on August 25, 2014.
  • The first day for teacher is September 2, 2014.
  • The first day for students is September 4, 2014.

I look forward to seeing you all.

Please note that there will not be a convocation this year. By not having a convocation, staff will have the opportunity to receive needed and required training.

I thank you for your continued dedication and service to our entire school community and look forward to a great school year!


Dr. Gloria Scott, Superintendent
