Dinerman Sworn in to New Providence Board of Education

January 4, 2013 at 6:51 AM

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - On Thursday Jan. 3, 2013, the New Providence Board of Education held their reorganization meeting, and Robert Dinerman was appointed to the board for the first time. Councilman William Dibble was also re-elected and will serve as vice-president and John Wolak will begin his third term as president.

Superintendent David Miceli said he is excited for Dinerman to join the board and is pleased Dibble is staying on. Since he came to New Providence, he said there hasn’t been much turnover amongst board members and it has really helped them and the district succeed.

The members know each other well and work as a team and as they establish policies and work on the budget, he said the addition of Dinerman will help them.

Dinerman said he ran because he wants to give back to the community and maintain the quality of excellence in the district. One of his goals is to start an alumni association, which he feels will greatly benefit the town.

He is replacing Nancy Opperthauser, who stepped down after 12 years on the board. He has known her for 25 years and said it’s going to be tough to fill her shoes, but he is up for the challenge.

“I’m excited and I’m nervous,” he said.

Dinerman, who will be working on the technology and curriculum committee, said it is his goal to continue to maintain the excellence of the district.

Beginning his third term with the board, Dibble said he got involved because it’s important for students to receive a good education. He said his time on the board has been great and feels the leadership of his fellow members, teachers and parents contributes to the success of the schools in New Providence.

“I think the community is very supportive of this institution and that speaks well of this place,” Dibble said.

Wolak, who has been on the board for a dozen years, said he enjoys giving back to the community and this is a perfect way to do it. He said looking ahead to the future, the Ipad initiative, finances and teacher evaluations are all major focal points for the board.
