Technology Integration Package
Essex County Public Schools has installed a "Technology Integration Package" (TIP) into every math class at Essex Intermediate School and Essex High School. This package consists of a laptop, tablet, LCD projector, six-foot projection screen, and a locked cabinet to store the equipment. Math teachers can utilize technology and allow students to participate by using the tablet which is projected onto the screen. We are teaching our students to be productive in the 21st Century by integrating this new technology to achieve our district goal.
To ensure that all students are properly nourished and ready to reach their full academic potential we are offering free breakfast to ALL STUDENTS for the 2014-2015 school year. Please make sure your child arrives at school on time each day to take advantage of this program.
