New Wallington School Board Member Appointed

At the most recent Wallington Board of Education meeting, members delved deep into various operational aspects of the school district, from staffing appointments to facility projects and financial management. Of prime interest was the introduction and swearing in of the newly appointed board member, Joseph Brunacki IV.

Superintendent Dr. Lozanski invited all board members to the school year orientation and announced the formation of a committee dedicated to naming the Olearz Lecture Room in the spring. Moreover, the board set a date for a presentation by the New Jersey School Boards Association to take place at the subsequent meeting on September 28.

A substantial part of the meeting was dedicated to staffing decisions. Several appointments were confirmed including Ed Rendzio and Robert Bell assuming roles related to school lunch monitoring and coordination, and the appointment of Kristen Kosmaczewski as a part-time Learning Disabilities Teaching Consultant. On a related note, the approval of tenure for employees Ms. Mangieri, Ms. Drishti, and Ms. Micciche effective from September 1, 2023. The board also acknowledged resignations from personnel Alex Locke and Christie Fusaro, and later, Ray Sica, demonstrating the natural staff turnover occurring in the educational setting.

Within the facility use and maintenance segment, two resolutions were passed with universal agreement, approving the 2023-2024 district organizational chart and designating roles within the Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying (HIB) Program. The unison in votes reflects the board’s collaborative spirit in affirming crucial operational and safety structures for the upcoming school year. Facility usage for active shooter training by the Wallington Police Department and games by WERC Jr. Football was approved; however, it saw board member Joseph C. Smith expressing concerns over locker room availability amid ongoing projects.

A noteworthy segment involved the update on high school referendum projects, wherein Mr. Smith brought to light considerable issues with the high school roof project, leading to a decision to withhold payment until these issues were resolved.
