WATCHUNG, NJ - Bayberry School will have a new principal. The Watchung Board of Education voted for the non-renewal of Bayberry Principal Jill Dobrowansky at their virtual meeting on Monday, following an hour plus long executive session. 

Dobrowansky is at the end of her contract and was on the call. She said,” I’m proud of the environment that we created where students and staff loved to come to school every day. I will miss seeing the smiles, sharing the laughter and sharing in the excitement of learning with the students and staff. Thank you for the opportunity to lead the school for the past two years. I will never forget my time as a Bayberry Bear. “


The NJDOE has a May 15 deadline to renew all employees.  Administrators  are evaluated using state approved rubrics and the Superintendent and Board of Education cannot legally discuss why an employee is not renewed, or any personnel matters in public.
