KENILWORTH, NJ — A little more than three months since being arrested on charges of lewdness, public defecation and littering, Kenilworth Superintendent Dr. Thomas Tramaglini has tendered, and the Kenilworth Board of Education has accepted, his resignation, effective Sept. 30, 2018.
In a story that went global, Tramaglini was arrested in Holmdel on April 30 after being accused of defecating on the Holmdel High School track, and has been on paid leave ever since. Police had set up surveillance at the field after the Holmdel track team reported finding feces "on a daily basis."
Tramaglini was appointed superintendent of the Kenilworth School District in February of 2016. His contract was set to run until July 1, 2020, earning a salary of $147,505.
Brian Luciani, the Director of Academics, has been serving as acting superintendent in Tramaglini's absence. The Board will commence a search for an interim superintendent, with the hope and expectation that one will be ready before the office becomes vacant on Oct. 1, 2018.
