Dear Teaneck Community,
On behalf of the Teaneck Board of Education, I would like to inform you that Ms. Barbara Pinsak, former Superintendent of Schools, will be joining us as Interim Superintendent after Dr. Irving leaves the district on June 30, 2022.
Ms. Pinsak served in this district for four decades and became Superintendent in 2011. After retiring in 2016, she joined Montclair Public Schools as their Interim Superintendent for two years. We are fortunate to have Ms. Pinsak joining us during this transitional stage as we begin our search for a new Superintendent of Teaneck Public Schools.
On that point, the Board has contracted with the NJ School Boards Association (NJSBA), an organization that, among the many services provided to New Jersey school districts, also conducts searches for school Superintendents. Our search process is officially underway and we will keep you updated on this effort. It should be noted that community input has, and will continue to be, an important part of our decision-making when selecting the educational leader of our schools.
Once again, we wish Dr. Irving the very best and we thank him for the many initiatives he led here in Teaneck. We are confident that our search will secure a new district leader who will guide us in our path forward. It is our hope that this endeavor will result in a new leader in place by the end of this calendar year - hopefully even sooner.
Mr. Sebastian Rodriguez, Teaneck Board of Education President
