Memorial Hosts Orange Public Schools for FRS-NJ Visit

  • On Thursday, April 11, 2019, Memorial School welcomed a team from Orange Public Schools to assist Orange in preparing their Future Ready Schools New Jersey application.


    Led by Ms. Linda Epps, Orange School District Supervisor, the team was welcomed by Memorial Principal, Mr. Raymond Payton, and Director of Technology, Mrs. Rosanne Moran.  The Memorial staff was represented by Mrs. Judy Canose, Elementary Computer Literacy Teacher and FRS-NJ team leader for Memorial, Mrs. Audrey Cirangle, Mrs. Dionne Phillips, and Mrs. Linda Carrington, RTI Teachers, who comprise the “heart” of Memorial’s team.  Mr. Scott Titmas and Mr. James Yanuzzelli, District Technology Integration teachers, also participated and shared their insights into the FRS-NJ process from a district-wide perspective.


    Memorial School was recognized by Future Ready Schools NJ last fall, earning “Bronze” status.  This year, Memorial School is pursuing “Silver” FRS-NJ status.  Part of the requirements for the “Silver” designation is outreach to other districts pursuing FRS-NJ certification.


    Together, both teams discussed the FRS-NJ process and provided insights into each other’s journey.  There was a feeling of great excitement as we discussed ways to achieve our goals.  We all agreed that the visit was most productive and vowed to continue to work together to further facilitate the use of technology through our school districts and the state.


    Thank you, Mr. Payton and Memorial School, for hosting this wonderful collaborative event.
