Voorhees Qualified as Acting Flemington-Raritan Schools Superintendent, State Says


RARITAN TWP., NJ – It’s official. Stephanie Voorhees, who was appointed Acting Superintendent of the Flemington-Raritan School District on June 12, is qualified to serve in that capacity, according to a state spokesperson.

Voorhees, who served as Business Administrator and Board Secretary under Dr. Maryrose Caulfield in the K-8 district, had come under criticism from some parents, who said Executive Superintendent of county schools Juan Torres had “informed multiple members” of the school community that Voorhees “lacks the required certifications to hold the Acting Superintendent position.”
