BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Doug Reinstein, President of the Berkeley Heights Board of Education, has announced that the Board will be seeking input from the community as it embarks on a search for a new Berkeley Heights Superintendent of Schools.

“As you may be aware, the Berkeley Heights Board of Education has initiated a search for a new Superintendent of Schools,” said Reinstein. “To support us through this important process, we have retained the services of Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates, a consulting firm that specializes in assisting Boards with the consideration of candidates for Superintendent of Schools.

“A key step in this process is to identify the characteristics we will be seeking in our new Superintendent of Schools,” continued Reinstein.  “We would greatly appreciate input and assistance with this important task. The Board of Education, therefore, is inviting members of the community to attend an Open Forum – four sessions are scheduled - and/or complete an online survey.”
