School Communication

EASTERN’s student-parent-teacher school communication tool is ClassMate. This system is our primary means of sharing information about student progress, assignments, and attendance.

Access your student’s records by logging onto ClassMate from any web browser at https://portals.classmate.net/dp/EASTERN/. District employees are required to create an account using their district’s email account when registering.

If you do not have your log-in information, please contact Veronica Stanley at 215-784-4800, ext. 313, or email at vstanley@eastech.org, or Ferne Andre at 215-784-4800, ext. 314, or email at fandre@eastech.org.

 

Dual Enrollment

Students in Allied Health, Business and Technology Professional, and Networking and Cybersecurity have the option to be dually enrolled with Montgomery County Community College (MCCC). This means that students in those programs are being taught the same college curriculum being taught at MCCC. These students are considered MCCC students, can obtain an MCCC ID, and take advantage of the college library and campus tutoring services.

  • Allied Health students can earn up to 3 credits.
  • Business and Technology Professional students can earn up to 9 credits.
  • Networking and Cybersecurity students can earn up to 12 credits.

Students/parents will be solely responsible for tuition and fees. Students can still enroll in these programs should they choose not to participate in dual enrollment.

 

Secondary to Post-Secondary Pathways

Dual Enrollment, Traditional Articulation Agreements, and State-Wide Articulation Agreements:

All EASTERN students have the opportunity to go college, often with credits earned while at EASTERN. Through state-wide articulation agreements, students can earn up to nine credits!

See the growing list of college opportunities for our students!

Students are now eligible to receive college credits through their NOCTI testing:

1. If a student (or teacher) accesses the list of Cooperating Colleges/Universities on the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) website and the contact person listed is not correct, please notify NOCTI and we will work with the NCCRS to attempt to obtain the corrected contact information.  NCCRS is working through an updating process with each of the 1500+ institutions listed.

2. If a student is denied credit by one of the cooperating colleges/universities, a request for assistance form may be completed and NCCRS will work with the college on the student’s behalf.
