The Franklin Lakes Board of Education says it plans to have a new, permanent Superintendent in place by the beginning of the 2014-15 school year, and according to an update at its recent meeting, the board will have plenty of candidates to choose from.
Monday night, board members updated the public on the ongoing Superintendent search, which is being carried out by third party search firm R-PAT Associates. R-PAT representatives are expected to give an update on the search at the next board meeting on Jan. 28. The update will be given in private session prior to the public meeting, officials said.
“They are extremely excited about the pool of candidates we have,” Board Member Michael Ben-David said Monday night. He added that the candidates include applicants ranging from current principals to sitting assistant superintendents and superintendents.
The board started its official search for a new district leader this fall, after current Superintendent Frank Romano announced last school year he would be leaving the district at the end of this school year.
