Please note that the district has made many changes to Genesis to support improved communication and allow students access to their own information. Parents must update their contact information on Genesis (https://parents.rtnj.org) as soon as possible. This will allow you to be contacted by school personnel. Genesis will send daily updates to our new Blackboard communication system, which is what we will use to send out all parent communications including snow/emergency day alerts. If you would like to receive these alerts, it is important that this information be kept up-to-date.
In addition to updating contact information, the Genesis parent portal now has important documents and forms posted for your review and acknowledgement. High School parents should await additional instructions before the portal will display final student schedules. Students now have access to Genesis using the student portal (https://students.rtnj.org) which they can access using their user name: StudentID@rtnj.org and Password: Network Pin. If you have any questions, please contact your child's school.

The Randolph Board of Education commissioned Hanover Research to conduct a survey of parents, staff and students regarding the district’s start and end times for the 2015-16 school year. The board considered the feedback from this survey, as well as other factors before voting to move back the district’s start times by 15 minutes for the 2016-17 school year.

In an effort to improve communications, the Randolph Township School District will switch from Honeywell to the Blackboard Mass Communications system, known as Connect5I or Parentlink, in July. The new system will use data from family Genesis accounts and will be updated daily. Each family will receive further instructions in August as to how to update settings.
