KENILWORTH, NJ – Kenilworth Schools Superintendent Thomas Tramaglini is on paid leave of absence following his recent arrest in Holmdel, where he is accused of defecating on or near the Holmdel High School athletic fields.

The 42-year-old Tramaglini was charged with lewdness, littering and defecating in public, according to Holmdel police. The charges were filed Monday, according to published reports.

Holmdel police said the investigation that led to Tramaglini’s arrest was initiated by complaints from school staffers using the fields.

“(The) Holmdel School Resource Officer was alerted by Holmdel High School staff and coaches that they were finding human feces, on or near the area of the High School track / football field on a daily basis,” said Holmdel police in a statement on social media.

They said the resource officer and school staff “monitored the area and was able to identify a subject responsible for the acts.” Tramaglini is a Matawan resident, police said.

The Kenilworth School Board issued a statement after learning about the matter.

“Earlier today, we learned of municipal court charges facing our current (Kenilworth) superintendent of schools in (the Township of) Holmdel, NJ,” said the board. “Given the nature of those charges, he asked for and was granted a paid leave of absence.”

The board noted that it can withhold pay only “in the face of indictments or tenure charges, as a matter of state law.”

The board said Kenilworth Schools Director of Academics Brian Luciani has assumed Tramaglini’s duties.

“The Board of Education wants to assure faculty and staff, students and parents, that the district will continue its responsibilities without interruption,” assured the school board. “Every day, and especially during challenging times, we are fortunate to have veteran administrators and other dedicated professionals on whom we can rely.”

It also promised to “continue to keep the community informed.”

Tramaglini is paid about $147,500 by Kenilworth schools.
