Dear Teaneck Community,
I am pleased to announce that at last night’s Board meeting, our Board of Education approved our new high school and middle school principals effective July 1, 2019:
Teaneck High School Principal – Mr. Clifton Thompson III
Benjamin Franklin Middle School Principal – Mr. Terrence Williams
Thomas Jefferson Middle School Principal – Ms. Nina Odatalla
I would like to thank all of our selection committee participants and those who attended the High School Principal Community Forum. You made time to take part in this important hiring process because these leadership roles are critical to the continued success of our district, and especially for the students they will serve.
Please join me in welcoming our two newest members to the Teaneck Public Schools’ family and in congratulating Ms. Odatalla on her well-deserved promotion.
Next up is the unveiling of our five-year District Strategic Plan which will take place on June 26th at Teaneck High School (3rd Floor Student Center at 8 pm). This is an exciting time for our school district; and I have high expectations for what we can accomplish in 2019-2020 and beyond!
Dr. Christopher Irving, Superintendent of Schools
