Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

The mission of the Morris County Vocational School District is to “provide vocational and enrichment programs that inspire and prepare students to succeed in today’s world and pursue tomorrow’s opportunities.” 


Our devoted staff is ready to inspire and empower our students to take full ownership of and actively participate in their learning.  In their book, Empower: What Happens When Students Own Their Learning, authors John Spencer and A.J. Juliani (Impress Books, 2017) state, “When we shift from preparing our students for what’s next, to helping them prepare for anything, a world of possibilities open up in their learning.” It is our honor to be working side by side with you, the community, and our business partners to “help students prepare for anything.”  


In just a few short weeks the 2019-2020 school year will begin. We are excited to welcome all new and returning students to our campus. In order to facilitate a smooth transition please review, understand and acknowledge the following documents and policies in your initial log on to the Genesis Parent Portal Parent Genesis Login.
