Millburn Schools Superintendent Crisfield Resigns


MILLBURN, NJ - The Board of Education of the Millburn Township Public Schools announced Monday that Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Crisfield has accepted a position as superintendent of another school district outside of New Jersey.

Crisfield, who has been Millburn Superintendent since 2010, will begin his new position on March 1, 2015. He will remain as Chief School Administrator in Millburn until that time.

Board of Education President Jeffrey Waters said, “While we wish Jim Crisfield well in his new position, the board is extremely disappointed to see him leave Millburn. The Board unanimously wanted to offer Dr. Crisfield another contract. Unfortunately, the realities of the current salary cap imposed in 2011 have resulted in Millburn being uncompetitive in what we were able to offer. Our loss is certainly his new school district’s gain. His new school district is very lucky to have Jim lead them.

He assembled an exceptional senior leadership team and together they have ensured that the Millburn schools have continued with their longstanding tradition of academic excellence. In addition, his focus on character education and citizenship has assured the development of our children as well-rounded citizens.”

The board will appoint Dr. Christine Burton, assistant superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, at its Nov. 24 meeting as acting superintendent effective March 1, 2015 through June 30, 2015 to ensure continuity of through the end of the school year.

The board also will outline the next steps in the search for a new chief school administrator on Nov. 24. Waters will appoint a search committee to begin the process of searching for a permanent superintendent.
