Two new Wyckoff school board members were appointed Monday to the township board of education following the resignations of two sitting trustees earlier this year.
Chris Della Pietra and Dr. Samir Taneja were selected by the board after a two week long application, interview and selection process.
Taneja and Della Pietra will begin their one year terms immediately, according to Wyckoff BOE President Rob Francin.
Della Pietra had been similarly selected to fill a vacancy on the board in August of 2011 following the resignation of Diane Sobin. He subsequently lost a bid to earn a full 3-year term last November.
Catherine Runge and Jill Mortimer stepped down from the board earlier this month, making way for the latest selections.
