Dr. Kendra Johnson, Superintendent Montclair Public Schools, sent the following letter to parents, staff and the Montclair Board of Education Thursday regarding staffing changes for Montclair Public Schools. A number of teachers have taken new positions in assistant principal roles; Montclair High School has three new assistant principals.


Dear Families/Caregivers and Staff:
I am writing to share an update on essential administrative appointments for the 2019-20 school year. For consideration, Board resolution provides me the authority to appoint candidates during the summer to ensure that the functionality of the District remains intact. Accordingly, I advance the following candidates as we thoughtfully organize and plan for an effective, efficient and collaborative 2019-20 school year. While we are one school district, the following moves have differentiated start dates based on the needs of each school community, coupled with an informed transition plan for each individual appointee. With the exception of one appointment, all moves are internal so staff will be able to communicate with each other to promote a seamless transition for students, parents/guardians, staff and community.

Please note I value our internal talent and my appointments are a sincere expression of how the Montclair Public Schools community continues to grow, evolve and develop together. We are truly Great by Design: #MontclairProud!
