Operations, Compliance, & Educational Support Services
Family and community engagement is essential to student success, and our goal is to help families provide the support critical to foster learning and growth. We know that investing time, resources, and guidance will improve our neighborhoods, the city of East Orange, and the future of our children, both in school and later in life. We invite you to believe in our students and engage in education.
FOCUS is a new, web-based, student information system that allows the East Orange School District to merge all student record keeping, grades, scheduling, attendance, and other student-data into one user-friendly system. One of the outstanding features of FOCUS is that it includes a parent portal that allows parents of students in grades 1 through 12 to view their children's grades, assignments, attendance, and report cards online. Please use the FOCUS links in the left sidebar of this page to register and access this program.
No Child Left Behind
The U.S. Department of Education requires every state to establish academic standards for students. The No Child Left Behind Act provides a model for measuring progress and achieving these standards. Annual testing of students allows us to identify academic needs, help our students acquire a more complete education, and prepare our students for a successful future.
The Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) is a consortium of 17 states plus the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands working together to develop a common set of K-12 assessments in English and Math anchored in what it takes to be ready for college and careers. These new K-12 assessments will build a pathway to college and career readiness by the end of high school, mark students’ progress toward this goal from 3rd grade up, and provide teachers with timely information to inform instruction and provide student support. The PARCC assessments will be ready for states to administer during the present 2014-2015 school year.

EOSD Text Messaging & Opting In
The East Orange School District has expanded our mass telephone communications system to one that allows us to send district-level emergency and non-emergency messages to parents by text messaging via the SchoolMessenger System. This new system provides a faster, more direct way for EOSD to get information out quicker.
