A Message from Our Superintendent

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

Dr. Kevin West

I hope your summer was filled with fun, relaxation and time well spent with family and friends. It is with great enthusiasm that I officially welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year. Here, in the East Orange School District, 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 school year is improving teaching, learning, and student achievement as we prepare all of our students for college, careers, and life in high performing East Orange Public Schools.

Research shows 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, students, parents and community partners. It must be an intentional collaborative team effort!

I need strong bold leaders; dedicated, committed, competent staff; serious, engaged students; and actively involved parents willing and capable of going the extra mile to ensure success and excellence. Our students must be prepared to compete not only with students across the state of New Jersey but also with students globally. Every one of us must and will be held accountable for the job/work that we do in positively transforming our schools and student success.

I look 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 safe, clean, welcoming schools. Together, we will strive to exemplify excellence in all that we do and make a positive difference. We don’t wake up to be average; we wake up to be the best that we can be.

Therefore, join me in adjusting our crowns, and unleashing greatness! It’s winning time! Let’s go! The Members of the East Orange Board of Education, Central Office Administration, and I welcome you back to the East Orange School District. Best wishes for an extremely rewarding and successful school year as you partner with us in creating “Visions of Excellence.”

Respectfully,
Your Partner in Education,

Kevin West

Dr. Kevin West
Superintendent of Schools
