RARITAN TWP., NJ – Dr. Jeffrey Moore will be the new superintendent at Hunterdon Central High School. The school’s Board of Education voted unanimously to approve his appointment at its meeting yesterday, according to a press release from the school.

He’ll begin on the job July 1.

Moore comes to Hunterdon Central after serving 10 years as a central office administrator with Freehold Regional High School District, the state's largest high school district with almost 10,500 students in six high schools.

During his 22 years in education, he has served as a director of curriculum and instruction, a strategic planning coordinator and consultant, a technology supervisor, an assessment coordinator, and a high school social studies teacher.

Moore has presented at state and national conferences on curriculum design, data-driven decision-making, strategic planning, and educational technology. He holds a master's degree and a doctorate in educational administration and supervision from the Graduate School of Education at Rutgers.

Moore’s annual salary here will be $157,500.

In a letter to Central’s staff, Moore shared that he is both honored and humbled to join a district that he has admired for its achievements. "Many districts," he wrote, "walk paths that you first cleared, measuring their progress against the distance that you have traveled."

"The Board is very excited that Dr. Moore has will be joining Hunterdon Central as our new superintendent,” said school board President Deborah Labbadia in the press release. “He comes from a district with a strong academic focus and a very diversified student population. We believe he will bring innovative and strategic ideas to our district and is an excellent choice to move Hunterdon Central forward in the future.”

Central’s school board began its search for a new superintendent last fall, hiring an independent search firm, meeting with various constituents, conducting an online survey and facilitating public sessions to create a profile of a leader that would best meet the needs and goals of the Hunterdon Central community.

Using that criteria, the board interviewed several qualified candidates before selecting Moore.

"Regional high school districts face unique challenges," said Moore. "We've got just four years with each student. Though it's tempting to let that short clock overwhelm us, I actually appreciate the urgency and focus that it brings to our work."

Moore and his wife Meghan have three children: Ian, Madeline, and Alexandra.

Although it will be a while before he starts in the job, the press release states he is eager to introduce himself and his family to the Hunterdon Central community throughout the spring.  The high school will be releasing information on opportunities to meet him in the near future.  For more information on future events, visit the school’s website

Trump Border Policy Wrong, Counterproductive

To the editor:

As an educator and a child-advocate, I have been at the forefront of the immigration debate over the past decade. And while I have always advocated for a comprehensive solution, I never thought any opposing plans were morally wrong; until now!

The Trump policy of separating children from their parents at the border is morally wrong and counter-productive from a public ...
