FLEMINGTON, NJ - Hunterdon Central High School Superintendent Christina Steffner is expected to be named tonight by the Livingston Board of Education as its new superintendent.

Livingston is a K-12 district that comprises nine schools.

Steffner has served as Central’s superintendent for the past five years. Before that, she worked as the school’s principal.

Livingston school board President Ron Spring, in a press release issued by the Livingston district, said Steffner “exhibited an honesty and openness to discussing a wide range of issues, and in her answers highlighted a track record for continuously moving forward in areas that would be beneficial to Livingston.
 
“At a time of hyper-change in education, she has been able to provide leadership and guidance for her management team and staff,” he said.
 
As Central’s principal, she was instrumental in infusing instructional technology in the classroom and creating a professional development model based on 21st century skills, according to the press release. As a result, in 2010 Hunterdon Central was chosen as one of two schools in New Jersey to receive a "Best Practice Model for High School Redesign" for technology integration and embedded professional development for teachers.
 
Livingston is preparing to embark on a one-to-one computing initiative. Spring noted Steffner’s experience in the areas of technology and the accompanying teacher training as among the factors that attracted the Livingston school board to her. Her anti-drug work with the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, combined with her operational and instructional experience and commitment to educational excellence were also noted by Spring in making the announcement.


 
Jim O’Neill, former interim Superintendent in Livingston who retired last year, guided board members in the superintendent search. Emerging as the top candidate, Steffner had the opportunity last month to meet with Livingston staff, administrators and parents in an informal series of meetings.
 
In the press release, Steffner said she is honored to become the next superintendent of Livingston Public Schools.

“I will make all decisions by working collaboratively with all stakeholders and by keeping our primary focus on what is in the best interest of our students,“ she said. “Recognizing the rapid changes occurring in our profession, it is my goal to support the Livingston community in balancing those demands with the needs of the children we teach.” 

Steffner was not immediately available for comment.
