Montclair Schools held a forum in February to introduce the public to three candidates that were named as finalists in the Superintendent Search. But apparently the BOE was not close to making a final decision.
Superintendent candidate, Ross Kasun, superintendent of the Freehold school system, tells Baristanet he dropped out of consideration the day after the February forum after learning from the search firm that the BOE would not be ready to make a decision any time soon.
“I was told the board needed to take some time to make its decision,” says Kasun, adding that no date was given as to when a decision on the finalists might occur.
With no answer in sight, Kasun did not want to leave his own district on hold and had to drop out.
“I had a great visit to the Montclair schools and the students were spectacular,” says Kasun, who said he was surprised when he was told the process had no clear end date.
