“These extremely accomplished gentlemen will make an invaluable contribution to our public schools,” said Mayor Jackson.
“My heartfelt gratitude goes out to Mr. Cummings, Mr. Deutsch, and Ms. Kulwin for their years of service to our community and particularly the Montclair Public Schools. Whether due to career commitments, changed family circumstances, or a desire to see new faces, all three thought that the time was right to move on. I honor their decisions and look forward to benefitting from their counsel in the future,” he said.
Rev. Caldwell-Gross, Mr. Kavesh and Dr. Turner will be sworn into office at the May 16 Board of Education reorganization meeting.
