Montclair, Essex County, New Jersey


The Montclair Public School District is a truly remarkable educational institution with a culture of innovation. We have a high functioning Board of Education that values excellence.  Montclair is a community that is culturally vibrant, attracts a variety of diverse families, and is home to New Jersey’s second largest university.


The district is comprised of 11 magnet schools, 6700 students, and 1100 staff members. The highest quality faculty, support staff, and leadership are essential to create and sustain a superior learning and teaching environment. We are recruiting a high quality educational leader to become our Superintendent of Schools.


District leadership has been cyclical for the last five years. In response, the Board selected a talented team of interim district leaders to identify challenges and strengthen district operations. Our new leader will build on current progress. One focus will be to eliminate the opportunity gap.  Another will be to upgrade the curriculum and facilities to best prepare students for the 21st century.


Our new leader will possess a strong background and capacity to strengthen core operations of the district. The individual must be energetic, thoughtful, considerate and compassionate, with excellent networking skills.
