BOE trustee Blumberg resigns; BOE seeks applicants to fill the vacancy
At the Glen Rock Board of Education meeting on Nov. 23, trustee Randi Blumberg announced her resignation from the board, explaining that she is stepping down due to the regulation that prohibits any family member of a sitting trustee to be hired for a seasonal position in the district. Her daughter, Sara Wolman, was on that evening’s agenda to be named as the new girl’s junior varsity head basketball coach. Following her formal resignation, Blumberg read from a prepared statement, recapping her experiences on the board and her philosophy about public education and the importance of educating the whole child.
Blumberg’s resignation was subsequently accepted “with regret” by the entire BOE. President Rona McNabola stated, “Randi has been an outstanding board member for over seven years.  During that time she has championed better communication and the district's focus on the whole child.  She has always had the wellbeing of all of the students in her heart.  She will be missed.”
Superintendent Dr. Paula Valenti also expressed her admiration for Blumberg. “I have enjoyed my time working with Randi Blumberg in her capacity as chairperson of the Community Relations Committee. Randi’s desire to work with this administration to develop programs emphasizing the education of the whole child is noteworthy; she has truly been a child-centered board of education trustee.”
State regulations require that the BOE appoint a trustee to replace Blumberg. That individual would serve until the BOE reorganization meeting in January of 2017, unless he or she chose to run for either what would then be a one-year unexpired term or a full three-year term. 
Qualifications for board membership include:
  • Citizen of the United States
  • At least 18 years of age
  • Ability to read and write
  • Resident of Glen Rock for a minimum of one year
  • Individual is not disqualified as a voter pursuant to R.S. 19:4-1
  • Individual is a registered voter in the district
Anyone interested in being considered for the appointment should submit a letter of interest and resume to: Michael Rinderknecht, Business Administrator and Board Secretary, Glen Rock Board of Education, 620 Harristown Road, Glen Rock, NJ 07452 no later than 4 p.m. on Dec. 15. The BOE will be announcing the timeframe for interviews at a later date.
Questions may be directed to 201-445-7700, ext. 8942.
