MONTVILLE, NJ – Charles Grau took the helm for his second term in a row as president of the Montville Township Public Schools Board of Education, having been appointed by a unanimous vote of the board. He was sworn in again for another term, having run unopposed in the November election, as were Karen Cortellino and David Modrak. Michael Rappaport, who was voted onto the board following Carmela Novi vacating her position, was also sworn in, having run unopposed in the election.

Grau said he thought that there have been very good board meetings in the past few years and he would “like to continue in that tradition.”

“I think we’re very fortunate that we don’t have any new board members this year,” he said. “Last year we had several. I think it will help the overall running of the board of education. But more importantly we have an outstanding group of administrators that we work with, and I think they, along with the principals, staff, teachers and students are what make Montville such an outstanding district. I feel privileged to serve as your president. We will have another great year.”

Michael Palma was again named vice president. He thanked his colleagues and promised to do his best in the position.

“There are a lot of boards that don’t get along with each other,” he said. “This board isn’t like that. Our strength is that we work so well together.”
