A Message from Our Superintendent

Greetings East Orange Public Schools Family,

Dr. Kevin West

We finally made it successfully through this 2018–2019 school year! I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank everyone who went beyond the call of duty for our students and school district creating a “Vision of Excellence.”

Throughout this school year, I have visited all of our district’s schools on numerous occasions and have thoroughly observed a multitude of classrooms several times seeing first-hand exceptional instruction that is taking place and those areas in need of improvement.

I reflect in admiration and respect on the hard work that has been done by our students, teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents in helping us move closer to our vision of preparing all students for college, careers, and life in high performing East Orange Public Schools. Of course, none of our successes would be possible without the cooperation and contributions from all of our committed stakeholders, including our board of education members and our numerous community partners. In our workplaces and in life, we all adapt to change on a regular basis. In education, this means that we are constantly looking ahead to make sure that what we teach and how we teach are aligned to help students prepare and thrive locally, nationally, and globally.

In our schools this year, teachers and principals have been working diligently to ensure that we are preparing all students with the skills they will need when they graduate. That is why our job responsibilities, including curriculum/assessments, are becoming more challenging and rigorous than ever before. The state standards provide more in-depth teaching/learning and sets new expectations for achievement and preparation for the NJSLA. However, we are ready to meet these new challenges.

Congratulations to all of our East Orange School District (EOSD) class of 2019 graduates and students moving up to their next level. They have successfully completed either pre-k, kindergarten, elementary, middle, and/or high school. I hope they will always have fond memories of their time spent in the EOSD, and I wish them all the best as they begin their new journey, whether it takes them to a new grade level, college, the workforce, or military. They are our next generation of leaders, and I expect them all to accept that responsibility and love the challenge.

To our parents, please stay involved in your children’s education. Thank you for all that you have done this school year to support our schools and our students. Your involvement is such an integral part of our students success. We cannot positively transform our school district without you.

During the summer months my staff and I will be diligently planning for the new school year by preparing our buildings and grounds, hiring new staff, getting our classrooms ready, and learning new and innovative ways to teach and engage our students in a variety of relevant ways that incorporate 21st century learning and career skills. We will continue to infuse rigor, relevance, and relationships into our daily lessons.

Because we kept our eyes on the prize, this has been another highly productive school year in many ways. As the EOSD superintendent of schools, I feel fortunate to have so many committed students, dedicated teachers, administrators, staff, caring/supportive parents, a supportive board, and outstanding community partners. Together we will achieve our vision of excellence.

Parents, please be sure that your child completes their summer reading and ensure they are actively engaging their minds on positive things that will enhance their brain power.

The East Orange School District Board of Education and I wish each of you and your families a safe, fun, relaxing, and enjoyable summer and look forward to seeing you in September.

The best is yet to come!

Respectfully,

Kevin West

Dr. Kevin West
Superintendent of Schools
