BORDENTOWN, NJ  -- The Bordentown Regional Board of Education is looking for feedback from parents and community members as it develops its search for a new Superintendent.

Dr. Edward Forsthoffer, the current District Superintendent, announced his retirement at the end of the 2020-2021 school year during the December 16, 2020 meeting of the Board of Education.

The Board, in developing a process to find his successor, selected the New Jersey School Boards Association (NJSBA) to assist with the search, and has the intention to post the position publicly before the end of February. However, before interviewing prospective candidates, Board members have been meeting with “stakeholder groups” to solicit feedback from the community, including District administration, students from the Middle School and High School as well as faculty and staff.
