School Board Recognition Month

School Board Recognition Month - Proud School Board Member - January 2021, New Jersey - Thank You School Board Members!

Thank you to our school board members!


January 7, 2021
Greetings East Orange School District Staff,

On Wednesday, January 6, 2021, we witnessed a grave breach of country's democratic traditions. For the first time in American history, supporters of the out-going President forcibly disrupted and insurrected the United States Capitol. We watched as hundreds, perhaps thousands of Americans, attempted to frighten the halls of Congress and our democratic system of government. 

I am sure that yesterday's news provoked a whirlwind of emotions as it comes off of the heels of the Black Lives Matter peaceful protests that ensued across the country this past year. For many, there has proven to be a stark contrast between the two and only reinforces the racial injustices that have plagued our country for hundreds of years. 

Please take a moment to read the entire message from our superintendent in its entirety.

Educationally Yours, 
AbdulSaleem R. Hasan, Ed.S.
Superintendent of Schools
