Superintendent of Fairfield Township Schools announces resignation

    Fairfield Township Schools have failed state-mandated tests the last four years, which could prompt state oversight should the New Jersey schools fail for the fifth consecutive year. Problems could get worse or better now that the superintendent has resigned.

    The Board of Education approved John Klug’s resignation at last night’s meeting, and will abolish the position altogether come April 17. As the News of Cumberland County reports, the superintendent and principal positions will merge this spring. But right now, the search is on for a temporary superintendent who can prioritize academics and save the schools from the state.
