CLARK, NJ – Personnel once again topped the Clark Board of Education agenda during their regular meeting held on Tuesday night.  The board accepted, with regrets, the resignation of Mary Lillis, a teacher in the Clark Preschool. 

“In an effort to shorten her commute, [Lillis] has accepted another appointment," Interim Superintendent Edward Grande said. "She was this year's teacher of the year and this is a true loss to us.  We wish her the best of luck."

The resignation of David Weiner, an Italian teacher at Arthur L. Johnson High School, was also accepted with regrets.
